We need better protections to block unwanted text messages

I have used new features on my iPhone and installed the Call Protect app to cut down on unwanted calls. However, the spammers have increased their use of text messaging, which does not provide similar features. I get over 10, and sometimes dozens, of these a day and it is becoming difficult to keep up with clearing my text messaging app so I can follow the messages that matter. Something needs to be done about this. It is a severe public nuisance and impediment to individual communication and productivity.
