32 Some sites won't work without java.  I use noscript to block as much as
33 I can.  With a much older adblock, I could block specific scripts with
34 it, even if they are not ads.  The modern adblock either can't do that
35 or I can't figure out how to do it.  In the adblock I use for Seamonkey,
36 woefully outdated I'm sure, I can list blockable elements.  Then I block
37 the scripts I don't want ran OR I make exceptions for the few I need for
38 the site to work and block all others.  I may try your way just to see
39 if it is a option at least. 
41 I know what you mean about small parts of something being in a image. 
42 I'm sure I've done that a few times as well.  I just wish they would
43 come up with a better way to do things.  At some point, the internet
44 could become more trouble than it is worth. 
46 Thanks.
