My advice..

Make sure you machine is up to date with patches and don't worry about 
port scans, you'll lose too much sleep.

I'm L3 for a major ISP, and I can tell you that if you forward port 
scan complaints, they will be more or less ignored...there are too many 
infected computers to track each and every one down.  It would pretty 
much take a law enforcement inquiry..and even then logs aren't kept 
around very long.
