In a comment on my blog, Cormac Herley rowed back somewhat from the position outlined in those paragraphs you quote.
He wrote: "[That line] was being a little provocative :-) The point I wanted to make is that the user has never seen anything to suggest that the annoyances are there for a purpose. That said, so many of the emails and comments Ive got have flagged this line that its clear I should have worded it better. I completely agree that even 100% false positives doesnt mean we can get rid of the technology."
If you made the warnings less severe, the problems they are there to prevent would become more common.
