Sure, but most won't (like tons of sites use the offensive default
text from Google's reCaptcha that suggests that disabled users are
inhuman), so it's better if suggests something good by
default.  Anyway, I think that particular message has changed, so:

Spam filtering is a good idea (I humbly suggest
and maybe among it) and I feel noscript access
is vital for accessibility, security and power-saving, so I wait for
news before suggesting to people.

Thanks. That wasn't linked from the pages I saw.  Is there a way to
report bugs without registering all that info with github?

After all, we share some belief in freedom, which doesn't really fit
with expecting people to register their legal full name and so on,
or with projects surrendering their autonomy to github (whose terms
of use contain something I don't agree with - I don't use my legal
full name in this context).
