So I'm participating in a ****ing event. I shadow the ****ing target, I stay on his ass, this kill is as good as mine. The opportune moment comes, I slide my finger from F1 to F4 to open fire.

Each of my guns pops up a window stating "THIS ACT WILL RESULT IN A SECURITY STATUS DECREASE." It then helpfully adds, "ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO OPEN FIRE?"

I scream. My target is killed by someone else while I clear these mother****ing windows. I foam at the mouth in impotent rage. No offense devs, you made a beautiful game but whoever came up with this feature needs to be taken out back and shot a few times in the back of the head. God damnit.

Its so when you meet a corp thief in empire space, and you get the urge to merge that mother****er with your bullets, you have a warning that you will get smoked by concord.

Yeah, but does it have to come up when I'm shooting THE MISSION TARGET?!?!?

Anyone who's had the "Smuggler Interception" mission should have experienced this. The haulers, which have bounties, and have to be killed, give this message.

Dev's, just make a MASTER option for all that 'newb' warnings, please.
Also make a 'smart' bomb option to be smart or not. I WANT to smartbomb that 10 loot containers around me.

Activate the first gun with F1, click away the pop-up, activate the remaining guns. One pop-up clicked, total reduction in reaction time, .2743 seconds. Oh yeah, it's horrible, horrible I say Rolling Eyes

It's there for protection, so new players don't accidentally shoot someone and as a result lose their ship.

A master option wouyld be great, though.

Thread locked, alas, for ranting.
