Add recaptcha (v3) to 'edit profile' pages

Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

We should add Recaptcha (V3) to the 'Edit Profile' page (profiles.wordpress.org/{{user}}/profile/edit/group/1/ - e.g., https://profiles.wordpress.org/jonoaldersonwp/profile/edit/group/1/), and bind it to the update button.

This should also be applied to additional profile editing views, like the 'Extras' section (profiles.wordpress.org/{{user}}/profile/edit/group/2/).

This should radically reduce the amount of forum/review spam.

Most of the profile spam was being ranked 0.7-0.9 on the reCaptcha scale.

Akismet is running on profiles now, where it wasn't a year ago, which started to catch a lot of the spam.

I've not looked too closely, but if you have any examples of very recently created spam profiles I'd love to have a look :)
