When I clicked on the link, all I saw was a headline and a photo. There wasn't even a scrollbar, let alone part of an article. I'm guessing it was because of my ad blocker, but there was no prompt to turn it off. Blush | :O


I didn't run into anything like that this time; but it has become annoyingly more common. IN the good old days you could just block the modal and it's full screen background and be good. Increasingly I'm finding pages that skip the fullscreen modal background and just disable scrolling on the main content instead. With the tools I have the only LART I've found that works is often to fully disable js on their site.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
