If they don't already know the stalkers identify, finding it out can be 
hard as the ISP (Telstra) can't give you that information. What they can 
do though, is investigate the "abuse" report you can send them, with 
evidence of the "abuse" coming from that IP. Short of that, you need to 
get the police involved. If you keep prodding electronically, you might 
find yourself on the wrong side of the fence with the law, both in 
privacy and "network" intrusions.

Text's can always be blocked by your phone provider. Email filtering 
shouldn't be too hard given they all come from the same ip address.
