Why doesn't Gmail have a block button?

Why don't gmail or other webmail providers have a simple "block sender" button, which not only archives/deletes a message but automatically does this for any future messages from that sender, so that you don't even see them?

To clarify, I'm not asking how to achieve this. I realize it can be done in a few steps with filters in gmail, for example. But it's such an obvious, simple function that you'd think there would be a one-click option for it, or at least a plugin that provides one, and I assume there's some good reason why there isn't. What am I missing?
