These humorous alert dialogs (Ioeth's brainchild) prevent users from practising with these tools, unless/until they come across the sandbox for user warnings. A section has been added to the documentation, but that is not read by most people.

The Welcome module has had this alert replaced by a confirm. The humour is lost, but this module can actually now be used on one's own talk page (for testing only, obviously).

The humour can still be there, if changing all alerts to confirms and say in line with "Welcoming yourself can be seen as a sign of mental instability! Are you certain you want to proceed?"

ahh, nice work! I was trying to think of something funny like that, but I ran into a problem, namely a lack of sense of humour...

For ARV I left the impassable alert there, since users shouldn't be reporting themselves.
For Talkback and Warn I have changed alerts to confirms.
