Good question.

For information:

The captcha on that site is shown by CloudFlare, that serves as a
proxy for them,

Maybe there was a reason for it.
"How to become a mirror" - does not say anything about captchas,
though it says "Your mirror must not be shown "inside" another site
using, for instance, frames."
