    LighthouseFiber datafeed corrupted
    When I tried to import some new datafeeds today, I experienced a HUGE level of errors -- and eventually tracked it down to LighthouseFiber.com (Merchants #4424) whose datafeed is filled with hundreds of line of bare HTML code instead of formatted data.

    Other corrupt data in ShareASale datafeeds
    While importing data from other SAS merchants, I found a number of other problems, involving the use of HTML code (or worse, portions of HTML code without any closing ">", which are nearly impossible to "fix" with a script). What follows are problems I found in some of the smaller datafeeds. Personally, I find the inclusion of bold or italic codes to be annoying but not crippling; the use of line-break codes does interfere more seriously with the appearance of my site; and inclusion of any "A HREF" tags is a huge violation of the affiliate relationship. Your mileage may vary.

    We found the offending error and corrected it in our feed. We just sent a new feed to SAS. It usually takes them about 24 hours to get it uploaded.

    We apologize for the error. There was a typo in our of our product descriptions. If you ever need help with our feed in the future, feel free to contact me directly.
