As no one else has replied...

As someone who will never have access to the source material (the Netflix
captions), I will have to rely on others to transcribe them.
I'm sure there are people on this list that would love to have the captions
in their notes as well.

As an All Access subscriber, I'll be done watching new episodes before
Netflix subscribers; so I'm not personally worried about spoilers.
Add in the time it takes to transcribe an entire episode, and we should be
pretty close to the 48 hour spoiler guideline.

As no one has chimed in with an objection, I'd say you're safe to go ahead
and start posting transcriptions.
