Stop Drudge Report From Refreshing

If you visit the Drudge Report often, you have probably noticed an extremely annoying feature on the site: excessive automatic page refreshing. Here's how to put a stop to The Drudge Report constantly refreshing. Answer this:

Are you tech-savvy? A geek? Nerd? Supercomputerist? Click on "Read More" and take the jump.

Everybody else click here.

# 2 Drudge's site relies upon JavaScript to reload the page. It got to be a real pain in the ass on my Maxthon browser. Maxthon rides engines of existing browsers on your system, so if Maxthon is on your computer, you may have to tinker with settings on whatever other browsers occupy space on your system, even if you [think] you never use them!

Chrome browser::: Add to the exception list on chrome://settings/contentExceptions#javascript HINT : You must type out ; not to make it work.

Firefox ::: Try NoScript, an extension that will by default block JavaScript on all sites, you then specify what sites that you want to run JavaScript.

Alternative : YesScript, which takes the opposite tack. It allows JavaScript to run on any site, you then specify what sites you want to block JavaScript on.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
