The last straw for me disabling them was when it wouldn't shut up with repeated alerts or obey volume settings. And it was for custody battle crap where I was still getting emergency alerts long after the news had reported finding them safe at a restaurant and were never in any real danger. Yeah, this probably makes me a terrible person for not caring about the children, but I don't need to be walking around with my phone constantly blaring loud noises, either. I signed up for SMS news alerts from local stations long ago which are far more effective for this kind of thing IMO.
