Crikey! Oldman - what a perfect example!

This has to be fixed/prevented.

I am afraid that you have drawn conclusions without knowing very well which.

Victor Martinez has spoken out:

https://jira.reactos.org/browse/ONLINE-740

Now dizt3mp3r, this is all up to you. Victor has said my warning sample doesn't fit well for the page thus we need someone else such as you that can provide a way more logical text sample than mine (of course... anybody else can also provide an example of a warning text but as long as it fits well and it's well written). He said he'll consider this issue in the next upcoming meeting. The JIRA ticket is still open, anybody can discuss.
