Comment (by saint):

 Instead of "Advised" and "Dangerous," the language could read "Better
 Security" and "Not Advised."

 Even "Advised" and "Not Advised" would be better phrasing. Most instances
 of javascript found in the wild aren't dangerous, and users don't have the
 information required to determine *why* javascript might be dangerous.
 They seem to find this confusing.
