Yes, you should not ignore the warning, but ElinorD and Crum375 are probably overdoing it. I say probably, because I don't speak for the whole Arbitration Committee and have not been able to look at the link you posted due to Wikipedia Review being down. I can understand their confusion however, as a number of users have been taking strong positions. Wikipedia Review is not subject to a site ban, only ED is. Unless something happens to change that... However, they are correct that it is possible to find some pretty nasty stuff on Wikipedia Review, and until recently on Daniel Brandt's site.
