Getting bad alerts RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is an old problem, just getting to be too annoying.  Roughly once a day I receive a strangely formatted alert.  It uses a monotype font and is otherwise useless since it doesn't contain a link to the thread that generated the alert.  It looks like this (it probably won't survive the post editor in tact):
