I didn't read your post

Perhaps you should have.

its not an error. It's a warning!

That's right. It's a warning that is telling the OP that something might be wrong.

By telling him to blindly remove the warning, you are removing the only clue he might have to find out why the program did not behave as expected.

The right thing to do in these cases is to either inspect the data or apply tome sanitizing methods to make the data consistent.
