Does it really reload things or is the throbber just spinning the whole time? Or, asking differently, assuming you have a wired connection, does the nonstop reloading suddenly stop if you plug the cable?

Okay looks indeed like non-stop reloading. #22530 is related I think.

Thanks. Yes, that's #22530 I guess. I'll close this as a duplicate as this is a blog bug I think.

22530 looks related but is it really a duplicate?
Could this issue be used to track mitigations for websites that depend on Javascript, and 22530 for making sure that nothing on torproject.org depends on Javascript?

So far it seems to me that our blog is the only website that exhibits this weird issue which is why I have marked this as a duplicate. If it turns out that there are a bunch of other websites showing the same problem, yes, let's reopen this ticket and think about ways to address it.
