*sigh* Come on, this is Google we're talking about. They can surely use some of the massive globs of data they collect to tell who is reputable and who isn't.

OK, fine. Only suppress the warning for paying customers in good standing who have been paying customers for at least 6 months. That should make it uneconomical for phishers.
