comment Why should one want to disable compiler warnings?
@Mahmoud oh, I love generics, but type erasure means it can't verify as much as, say C#. Which means when I try and do some of the things I'm used to, I end up having to ignore warnings about unchecked code.

@Mahmoud I very often find myself having to surpress "unchecked" warnings when doing anything even remotely complex with generics. But it's probably unfair to lump Java in with C++ on the ridiculous warnings front - edited my answer.

Surely as an initial guess it's a good start, so long as it's easy to correct when it gets it wrong.
