    Yet they are a good indicator that something is wrong (not performing
    properly) or may be failing soon. I don't think putting on blinders
    for such problems is a good idea. Though I agree that the question of
    how to report such things without needlessly alerting Joe Clueless is
    an interesting challenge.
