could something be overriding my syslog.conf file? I looked at rc.conf but
didn't see anything that I thought was appropriate to comment out.

Also, I can't switch to another tty because my only access is remote --- I

When you're in Vi, and syslog prints across the screen, using CTRL+L
re-draw the screen, and remove the syslog messages.
If you want to get rid of the messages altogether, look into disabling
syslogd, via /etc/rc.conf.  (Man syslogd, or check
/etc/defaults/rc.conf for

I'm sure this is something that is being overridden by your ISP and the jail system they have set up. I would suggest you talk to them and see if they have something they can do to disable it.
