I do not see a reason for using two IRC networks.  FSF decided on Libera.Chat.  I did not use a web browser, Google, or JS to register my nick and use Libera.Chat.

anyways, you can easily check this yourself - neither appears to
have any captcha
As I recall, most of the time it did not ask for Google catcha.  But
when I changed the browser in some way it required captcha to enter and
by other unknow reasons on other occasions also.  It would be good to
audit it profoundly.  Perhaps the situation has changed.
