So the solution is to disable JS?

Basically, yes. I use NoScript, blocking everything by default. If a page doesn't load, I enable stuff until it does. I've been doing this for years, so I know what's generally needed.

But for Goodreads, I'd be hosed as soon as I allowed the site itself:

However, it's more or less readable without allowing any scripts. So hey.

So was that a way to work around ad blockers?
