Mailchimp form too many requests issue

Hi all,

First post, thanks in advance…

Having some issues with setting up a signup for a friend’s splash page. Have done this before… Have the right link, set to post, https, etc.

I’ve even made sure that the form data name is EMAIL in all caps, per this article

But when I test the page, the form fails and page is redirected to an errored mailchimp form:

Thought changing the form-data name would work, but no dice… Done this in the past without issues (this is a free plan but shouldn’t matter I don’t think).

Wondering if it doesn’t like the typed.js file I have running to create that typing effect… ?
