I think this is a milder version of the idea of shutting off warnings 
You should always see these warnings - in your scenario, you may have 
forgotten that you used a low-res version of an image, and need that 
reminder. You should get used to seeing the warnings, and learning what 
they mean. Something like the resolution of an image is not only clearly 
stated, but easy to ignore.
Scribus comes from a point-of-view of people putting out work for a 
professional printer, where not getting simple warnings can be costly or 
Don't worry, the verifier is not making any judgment about you and the 
work that you do.
