If the site:.edu cialis type results are what Google is out to try and help with, how will the warning message even help? In effect, Googlebot does not even know the redirect is taking place, since its being shown different content. If it DOES know the redirects are happening, drop the pages from the index. (Completely drop)
The example is even more of a reason to completely delist "pages" that are compromised, and develop an effective way to communicate the issue to a Webmaster.
In my opinion, if Google knows enough, or even has enough of a clue that they should show a warning message, they should simply remove the content and the links (within their own control) to the content from serp's completely.
It's about protecting the people, right? What if some unscrupulous person started a false rumor about E Schmidt having some horrific disease, yet he didn't know the rumor himself?
Would we just tattoo it onto his forehead for the world to see, or pull him to the side to talk about it first?
