There is now a free script that blocks SideWiki comments without blocking or redirecting all GTB users.

"Defeats Sidewiki tracking amalgamation of comments by generating and appending a unique hash to each URL. Works only if there is no hash portion present in the request URL and JavaScript is enabled."

Oh MY!  In this case, the cure is much worse than the disease.
