What Happens When You Don't Filter Your Wire Feeds

If you've ever worked on a newspaper and looked at the raw AP-wire feeds, you'll see some oddball stuff come through there sometimes. The problem is that if you run a site that takes the feeds and dumps them unedited, you sometimes get some oddball stuff that comes across the wire (mirroring it below for archival purposes).

(AP) -- Hello. We are still trying to find out more about the two Marines who died in the jet collision. Word comes from the Marines that in civilian life Gary Fullerton, of Spartanburg, S.C. was a pilot for FedEx, and that Jeffrey Ross, of Old Hickory, Tenn., worked for Comair. We have called flaks from both places to confirm, get more info about both Fullerton and Ross, but wanted to pass this info along in case it might help to track down anyone locally. Thanks! PTOjulia
