Please understand that the content creation and programming of this website requires a great amount of work. By disabling JavaScript or advertising, you make a negative impact in the reward that the creator of the website deserves for the effort made, automatically blocking fundamental elements such as the advertising (which has been never bothersome in this website), any possible social buttons used to share content and even the analytics system used to track the presence and habits of the users inside this website (yes, inside, not outside). As a counterpart, the visitor, who has free access to all the content (which includes a good part of high quality and unpublished content currently not available elsewhere), consumes a part of server resources, which are rather limited. So please, consider enabling your JavaScript, disabling your ad blocker or while-listing/allowing this website, and don't let the fair ones to pay because of the sinners.
