Every time I publish a post, Tospy adds their pingback to my post.

It's annoying, but I don't know how to stop it.

Any advice?

@Sorin Sbarnea I am curious how blacklisting (my answer) is not a solution? In context of WordPress this is really how to deal with trackbacks that are being created, WP cannot really influence what some service on the Internet sends out. – Rarst Jan 2 '12 at 14:58
@Sorin Sbarnea I do not follow, which links? If you have an idea how to improve the answer by editing you can also do it yourself. – Rarst Jan 3 '12 at 13:54

Add topsy.com/trackback (or whatever they are using for those links now) to Settings > Discussion > Comment Blacklist.

Have you marked their comments as spam? Akismet is supposed to learn from comments you mark as spam. Try that, it should start being marked as spam eventually.
