Defaults Questioned

Looking at the extensions I see the following set as defaults & would like to know why:

AdguardAssistan & Extra :

// @exclude *://mil.ru/* - Russia's military. Understandable.
// @exclude *wikipedia.org* - Understandable
// @exclude *icloud.com*- Understandable
// @exclude *hangouts.google.com* - Understandable
// @exclude *www.facebook.com/plugins/сomments* - Understandable even though I dont use FB
// @exclude *www.facebook.com/v*/plugins* - Understandable (same as above)
// @exclude *disqus.com/embed/comments* - Needs explanation as to AG's pov for having this excluded.
// @exclude *vk.com/widget* - Understandable.
// @exclude *twitter.com/intent/* - Understandable, but does this respect social annoyance block list?
// @exclude *www.youtube.com/embed/* - Understandable
// @exclude *player.vimeo.com* - Understandable
// @exclude *coub.com/embed* - Understandable
// @exclude *staticxx.facebook.com/connect/xd_arbiter/* - Understandable, but does this respect social annoyance block list or override it?
// @exclude *vk.com/q_frame* - Understandable
// @exclude *tpc.googlesyndication.com* - Needs explanation as to AG's pov for having this excluded when it serves ads from google according to various sources. Defeats the point of having AG.
// @exclude *syndication.twitter.com* - Assuming this is twitters cross widget. Would this not be allowed if the main domain is allowed? Also... does this respect social annoyance block list or override it?
// @exclude *platform.twitter.com* - Understandable, but does this respect social annoyance block list or override it?
// @exclude *tutosdeath.blogspot.com* - REALLY curious at to why a warez / 0-day app site is excluded as a default when AG is paid software that stops functionality when pirated.
// @exclude *notifications.google.com*
// @exclude *google.com/recaptcha/*
// @exclude *bizmania.ru/* - Russia economic edu-gaming site. Understandable.

Yes I was introduced to AG via a pirated copy installed by a friend, BUT I purchased it because it simply works.

AdGuard Popup Blocker :

Most everything excluded by default is understood since most of those site use pop up windows for logins and valid content display, BUT:

// @exclude *://*.googlesyndication.com/* - Needs explanation as to AG's pov for having this excluded when it serves ads from google according to various sources. Defeats the point of having AG.

Web of Trust :

// @exclude *uploadable.ch* - When a number of A/V and malware utilities block the site siting javascript redirection trojans when just visting the site.

I am not above correction, but I would like to know these things especially since I will be recommending AG for network wide filtering at work above Pi-hole.

Hello there!
The exceptions you specify are widgets that are frequently used by websites.
And to avoid using the script again, we added them to the exceptions.
