Shortcode Marketing madness

Does anyone know how to block SMS shortcode marketing. I have found a few commands that the source will respond to like "help" and "stop". even if i cant blok it id like to goof with the system, if anyone has access to more command info i would appreciate it. Stop only seems to work untill they develope a new marketing campain then the short code gets anoying

did some homework on user end response commands...

All programs must support the universal commands STOP, QUIT, END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, STOP ALL, and HELP.

Seems like the system acts like dos.. or dos based only thing leading me to think otherwise is the help command returns customer service phone number not other commands.

would love to see some feed back on this.
