How does one delete trackback ping spam?

Sadly, 20 spam pings later, I figured this out today.

Set up MT so you get an e-mail when you are pinged. See what entry the e-mail tells you was pinged. Manually go to that entry and delete the ping there.

It sucks!

MT Blacklist will delete trackback ping spam as well.

You are correct. I didn't think it would, because when I clicked the little "De-Spam using blacklist" link, it said the ping wasn't found. That's why I originally thought it didn't de-spam trackback pings. But then I just refreshed my MT control screen, and all the trackback spam pings were probably Reverend Misa was cleaning up for me...?
