    Hello, and thanks to you both for asking. Apologies for the delay in replying to you.

    The problem you have is almost certainly related to something you have installed on your computers. Some browsers and browser extensions designed to protect users' internet privacy do so by blocking requests to 3rd party tracking services. We see it most commonly when people have difficulty sharing stories to Facebook. Firefox recently made this their default, for example, but more and more it is the norm. "Disconnect" is one example of this kind of browser add-on or plug-in, but there is a whole class of them.

    If this is the case for your browser, it may be possible for you to disable this extension for Daily Kos if you choose. In any case, you may still share posts via copy&paste to your own timeline, though that's not as convenient as using the share button.

    We appreciate your support of the site.
