@jurassicmonkey ​"default npm audit behavior" default give sthe impression the warning level is adjustable and default is set at the highest level. It would be nice to know how hard it is to set to a level that suit the JS being written.

Coming from C, C++ and C# development if we left the warning level at default with every warning treated as an error we would be in a similar position with false positive rates. We set the level and exclude certain types of warning from being generated.
