BuzzBoost appears to be Broken

Cheech: "Why do they call it BuzzBoost?"
Chong: "I don't know, I got your Buzz Boost right here, he, he."

If you are a feedburner fan, like I am, then you probably are experiencing problems with feedburner like some of the fine folks on FeedBurner Help Group.

Here are a few comments from others:
mintmark: BuzzBoost Malfunctioning. Only Incomprehensible HTML Displayed
BuzzBoost appears to be malfunctioning. Our auctions are now a mess! Only incomprehensible html is now displayed. Is there an good alternative service that converts RSS to HTML? If this situation isn't corrected soon, we'll be forced to remove Feedburner from all of our sites. Until now, Feedburner has been an excellent service. It would be advantageous (and good business sense) if Feedburner posted the status of thier service. For example, "We're sorry, but we are currently experiencing some technical difficulties with BuzzBoost." We have many clients who purchase high ticket items from our auctions -- auctions which can not now be seen.

baz: I am having the same issue on my page. Interesting to see that it was at some point working.

Thanks for posting. I thought it was just me and I'm taken the html out of the display, temporarily. What gives Buzzboost?
