The thing about use warnings; is that it helps you to avoid subtle, sneaky errors that you would otherwise have a very difficult time tracking down. I'll gladly put up with a few spurious warnings, versus spending many hours of head-banging debug time trying to find where I slipped up. For me, use warnings; has paid for itself many times over.

As is so often the case, YMMV. I've never encountered anything like the situation you mention. Perhaps I'm not sufficiently advanced; perhaps it's just coding styles. If I ran into problems more often, I might agree with you and stop using warnings. To date, though, this nit-picky little pragma has saved me much aggravation and gnashing of teeth, muttering evil phrases, and all that fun stuff we're so good at.
