I don't think you can with the default SMS app.

The 2 best alternatives, HandCent SMS & GoSMS offer a feature called blacklisting - you can long-press hold a conversation and choose to add it to your blacklist. Such messages will be hidden (not deleted) and you won't receive notifications / popups.

You can also configure individual notification colour and ringtone for a particular user.

Your carrier may be able to block the contact for you. For example, here is how you would do it on Verizon.

+1, you can also often text the number to short-code "SPAM" or similar. (And with my vote, your rep is now OVER 9000!!) – Matthew Read Mar 7 '11 at 18:46
