I've deployed Pi-hole at home as well as a few friends & families networks. SD seems to use all sorts of providers to click-track and pi-hole renders the site unusable.

Why so many ad-tracker / click track services? I wouldn't mind whitelisting one for SD but it's all but impossible to keep up.
My guess would be that it's because each advertiser network has their own various 'click-track' links and SD would have to use the ones that advertiser wants. Hence the various links. (No doubt devs and the admins would love it if all companies used same ones, but they don't).

There is a list of some here that you can use for white-listing, if that helps

scroll down to the "Why do certain links lead to a "Page not found" page?" part.
