The trick is how to make it ALLOWED. In Squid's view it is again a
request for the same page which is still blocked.

Or is a not missing from the last part above? (should NOT bother ...).
If so, then it can sortof be implemented via the redirector interface by
implementing a database shared by the redirector processes telling what
users have been warned about which pages. Problem is that the
redirectors (or even Squid in general) does not know if the user has
closed his/her browser.
