...it really is the 3rd party plug-ins that are probably more a problem than the projects at Eclipse.Since fixing third party plugins is impossible, the platform must step in. Two suggestions.
Firstly, as an aide to better code: An API such as MessageDialog.openErrorOnce(...) to ensure that a message only irritates once. This would save me and other programmers having to maintain their own have-I-reported-this-already logic.
Secondly, as a counter-measure to determinedly irritating plugins. Additional buttons on modal dialogs (possibly behind the Help button) could allow users to set a never-show-me-this-dialog-again preference.
