spoofing / hiding your user agent string

Not intentionally.

IP blocks of VPN providers are being blacklisted like tor nodes or open proxies

And I'm not using a vpn or tor or an open proxie.

I mostly use the latest firefox nightly, custom compiled. I do have configuration settings changed, and use plugins, so that things I consider insecure, or trackers, aren't available.

But I don't think any of that is relevant. If recaptcha isn't there when google javascript is turned off, and is there when google javascript is turned on, the problem is that google javascript is needed to run the recaptcha.

it's a pain in the friggin ass since it's not one site,

I could just whitelist google if that was the issue. But though google isn't formally part of the US intelligence community, anything they know is available to the US intelligence community. And they know a lot - probably more about who you currently are than your parents, or siblings, or friends. It's why China worked so assiduously to remove them from the country. They knew that google was really an American intelligence operation in disguise.
