      Thank you for reporting this.  I just submitted a fix and it should go out after lunch.

    I second this issue. I find when I do a hard refresh of the page I am able to follow, but nothing pops up in the way of leaving fan mail.

    I had that problem earlier today.  I think that just refreshing the page and waiting a minute for everything to load. . . solved it for me.

    I'm universally sort of slow so far as the amazing world of the interwebz is concerned.  I might have just got lucky.

      Me too. Same thing. Follow button didn't respond. After 3 tries it went from Followers and the number of them, to UnFollow with no Post Fan Mail Page.

        Me too, I just tried and came here right away to see if anyone else was experiencing the same problem.

        I'm going to refresh the page and see if that works.

    I just noticed when I click to follow nothing happens but I see that this hub thread shows I am following.  I also notice that no opportunity to leave fan mail pops up.  One other thing, I notice when I have read a hub and left my comments that I then have to go back to the person's profile page to follow or to send fan mail.  Wasn't the follow button on the hub page before, not just the profile page?

    I noticed this too a few minutes ago.

    It doesn't work when clicked on but if you exit the persons profile and go back, it will then indicate you are following.

    Strange..... lol

    I just followed 2 peeps now and noticed it.

    I was having the same problem with the follow button. After clicking it a few times I hit refresh and the follow button turned into an unfollow button, so I suppose it worked by refreshing the page.
