Spammer sending UDP packets to 1026. What can i do?

Using Kiwi syslog daemon, I have recently noticed a lot of inbound UDP and TCP/IP packets from 204.16.209.140 & 204.16.209.110 & 204.16.209.159 & 204.16.209.120 on many different ports including ports 1026. I assumed it was just some spammer trying to send pop-ups to anyone listening on 1027 but there are a lot of other ports they are sending UDP to. The whois returned the data below.  And I reported the traffic to their Abuse submission form. I doubt anything will happen.
         My question is, who else can I report this too? Besides blocking the IP range at my firewall, what else can I do to protect against it?  I'd like to forward the packets from that IP range to a linux box to get a look at them.

 Thanks for any help.

there is not really much you can do. from what you already doing. the traffic  source can originate  from anywhere in the world spanners can just be using that  particular server for spanning make sure you have the messenger service disabled on all your systems.

perhaps a software firewall at OS level as well for extra protection.
