I would only like to say that reducing the "warning" to a "notice" would 
also reduce the irritation.

Ie. instead "WARNING. Word word word" it could also be

"New volume xx overprovisions thin pool by xxx".

This way you don't give the user the idea that you think he/she is 

I know this still implies some verbosity but it doesn't have to be an 
"error". It can simply be a "notice".
