    Hello, and thanks for asking. Sorry for the delayed reply to your query.

    This is an unusual issue, but I'm going to guess it's caused by some sort of blocker you have on your browser. Would you please try the same link in a private or incognito window? That mode disables nearly all extensions/add-ons that might be interfering with the proper function of this embed.

    If that does not do the trick for you, please let us know and we'll dig deeper. At that point it would also be good for you to tell us what browser/operating system you're using, and also the exact link (or at least the petition title) so we can come as close as possible to replicating the situation.

    Thank you for your support of the mission of the site.

    The same thing continues happening to me after I turned off the ad blocker and my identity was lost. I have twice tried resubmitting our names to send the petition, and the button just keeps on turning.

    OK, thank you. I'll be investigating. What operating system/browser are you using? We need to be able to replicate the problem to solve it, and these tend to be browser-dependent.
    Thanks for your help with troubleshooting.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 13, 2000 series. The petition process has always worked for us until about 2 days ago. Then this inability to finish showed up. I hope you can find the OS from what I told you or can tell me how to find it.
    I'm using Chrome. Again it worked until this issue.
    Thank you.

    You've probably already figured this out, but it's Windows 10 64-bit OS, x64-bit processor

    Tonight I had a successful response to the petition regarding the threat against the whistleblower. Since that may be the result of your efforts, thank you.
