is the blacklist maxed out?

I got another 3some of comment spammers and tried to add the URLs to the blacklist but got the following return:

Could not save your blacklist data: Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet'
Guess that means some switch somewhere needs to be reset?

Yeah, the spam bucket is full. I'm removing the redundant entries, but it's a slow process.

Maybe I can work out a way to wash it automatically...

As usual, the Pixy's come around when we are all asleep to repair all the broken items.

As a random note, I got some spam on one of my old posts and it was labeled as being from Google, the web addy was, and the email was something like Comment@ it might have been, maybe gmail, i don't remember. But it was irrevelavant to the post (one of my science question of the day posts) and it was about kittens... the post was about the absolute 0 temperature.... just a heads up. I didn't do anything to it, I just decided ot ignore it cuase I didn't want to muck anything up.
