is that actually a present threat or is it just assumed to be? because thats how gangsters like cloudflare keep you under their control and within their perview.
use tor, avoid cloudflare sites where possible, do not connect to cloudflare sites, use internet archive to view cloudflared pages, contact cloudflared sites and make an appeal to stop using it, always e2ee where possible/feasible, find alternatives to surveillance platforms (invidious>youtube, nitter>twitter (mastadon>twitter), bibliogram>instagram, etc.)
the point of the improved security is not about simple trust, but about protecting you even in the event of trust. unless you are actively using the scripts, it is better to block them. anyway, you can just unblock the scripts using noscript, the shield is global and affects your entire browser. there is no excuse to keep the shield empty, it is basically never even needed to be set below half.
