Yes, thats how the alert system is programmed now. The only overriding is if alert foo1 was defined in a check-entry, then only the check-entry alert is sent to foo1. I agree that it is be more logical if a check-entry override the global list. It's easy to change this, but it will affect backward compatibility. What do others think? Should this be changed?

I think we should keep the current behavior - it is useful to join the global and local lists. To disable the global alert in particular service, i think it could be possible to support something like 'none' option in alert filter, such as:

set alert foo

check service_1 ...

check service_n ...
 alert foo on { none }

=> service_n will not send alert to foo.
