You're right, I may have a case of tunnel vision here. I'll get a reality check when I visit with family over the holiday. My suspicion is that some of the concern posted above is its own kind of tunnel vision - essentially wounded site owner pride. I'll see what my clan of VERY ordinary Google users has to say.
I do agree that clicks will go down - way down - as long as the notice appears. And well they should, IMO. But they'd go down even further if the URL was dropped from the SERP until repairs are made.
