Asking the Opponents to Stop Alerting

When the opponents are playing a system in which some of their auctions require a long series of alerts, is it legal and/or reasonable to ask them to stop alerting after one or two rounds of bidding? Does your answer depend on the level of competition?

I know this topic has been discussed before but it's been a few years and I'd like to know what current thinking is. I used to play the Precision alpha, beta... asking bids that went alert-alert-alert and always stopped alerting when asked because it genuinely irritates some players and it seemed like the polite thing to do. There were no laws back then but if there are laws now is this the sort of thing where civil disobedience is common?
