    That is correct, all or nothing.  But with the ones they selected, I doubt it'll become an issue of 'over warning'.  They are pretty serious!  And we know it's bad if you get more than one in a week!

    You're missing the whole point...  By making it opt-out, people will finally have a universal warning device.

    You're missing the whole point: I DON'T WANT ONE.
    Making it opt-in would highly reduce its usefulness.

    If you want it, you know where to get it. If you don't, you don't have to care. That's how this works. That's how everything else works in iOS, too. Apps don't get access to your data by default, forcing you to tell them no. It's no by default, forcing you to tell them yes.

    No, you have no right to accost me with crap I don't want, regardless of the age.
