Phishing spam emails that appear to come from blizzard.com or battle.net should be reported (forwarded) to hacks[at]blizzard.com

Useful advice wkrick, thanks.

The parser only looks at the actual source, deliberately ignores the "From:" and "Reply-to:" headers (too easily forged, as is apparent) so I don't believe this would be a viable development request.

Paying reporters can add the hacks@ address you have identified to their report distribution when they report these phishes.

Any hijack links (apparently to us.blizzard.com but not) in the spam should be picked up and reported to the actual host. Again, paying reporter can add a report to hacks@ to alert us.blizzard.com.

Any pirated content links in spam (to the real us.blizzard.com) should be picked by the parser for reporting to (looks like) abuse[at]att.net which provides a possible avenue of notification/advice to blizzard.com - they need to talk to att.net - see http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/88.html - perhaps you can advise them?

Moving this herewith to the Lounge.
