Phew, actually I'm glad you dislike this stupid behaviour.

I'm more in favour of a message only, entering email addresses twice is
a nuisance and if you can copy-paste the data, it doesn't serve a
purpose other then to frustrate a user (I fear lots of people don't
understand the meaning of the same field twice).
Instead showing a notice seems better to me, though it doesn't look
