I did this, and even did a reboot of the server but the messages haven't

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
don't have console access.

System messages print out to the console on tty0 only, by default. If you want to use the console, switch to tty1 or above. Do this by ALT+2(tty1), ALT+3(tty2), etc. When you're in Vi, and syslog prints across the screen, using CTRL+L will 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 syslogd.

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.
