Confirm comment report request

I have tried about five times now, with the same "no response" message each time. I note from the Javascript of the HSBC page that an initial form entry has been commented out. It asks the buyer to enter the type of credit card. In the absence of this input HSBC's server must be performing some sort of calculation about which database to query, because the card number and expiry dates are the only mandatory fields on the page. Its calculation is evidently not giving a sensible answer for some cards. This is not Castle's fault, but I think they should chase HSBC up about this. Why is that first field commented out?
