Has anyone experienced content going live BEFORE their set publish date? We experienced a mess of content going live well before their intended publish date, and set off a bit of a firestorm in our newsroom. I have heard of this happening once at yet one other property, but I thought I'd ask around as I'm submitting a help ticket. It's a somewhat sketchy idea of a bug, especially considering embargoed content. We're going to attempt to test it again to recreate it.

Or, are you saying that the start date had not yet been reached, but the content was still showing? If that's the case, in what context was the content showing? BLOX has internal code which specifically prevents items whose start time has not been reached from showing in blocks and searches.
How was the content corrected?
So yes, the start date had not been reached and the content was indeed showing.
We simply disabled all the stories to prevent them from showing live.
If so, do you mind if tomorrow I change the times to try to re-create the issue for just a few minutes? Then I will put it back to "no publish" again. We'll need to see it in action to be able to diagnose the problem.
