Since data.table doesn't respect quietly = TRUE when loading:

> library(data.table, warn.conflicts = F, quietly = T, verbose = F)
data.table 1.11.4  Latest news: http://r-datatable.com

It would be nice to have an option to suppress this, e.g. tidyverse has:

options(tidyverse.quiet = TRUE)
library(tidyverse)

The alternative, using suppressPackageStartupMessages(), is a bit clunky.

Thanks @leobarlach, I've edited your post heavily to re-frame it as a feature request, I think it's a valid and good request to have an option like this.
