If I've interpreted the traffic here correctly, the effect of ticking the "generate coins"
box on my client is that my CPU will labor for YEARS (on the average) before producing anything,
meanwhile burning electricity and wearing out my fans and making lots of noise.

Maybe that's a smart thing to do and maybe not, but there sure as hell ought to
be an up front warning in large, friendly letters, rather than just an innocuous
checkbox in the options panel.

This has been discussed before. The problem is not Solo Mining, it's CPU mining. Nowadays, that's pure waste.

There are others who also think the option should be removed from the standard client or at least have a warning as you said. Probably something will be done concerning this.
