Some repo's/sources contain pirate software/cracked apps and as such cannot be verified by Cydia and should not be touched, the warning is there for a reason choose wisely.

Because anyone can put anything on there basically. The internet is a wild place, it's all at your own risk. :P

It's just a matter of time before somebody writes a neat little app that grabs all your personal data from various apps (online banking for instance) and uploads it to a thief, all while letting you play a game or do some "useful" function in the foreground. Then they'd just need to host it on a repo somewhere and get people to download it.

Bit of a give away what type of repo's you are adding or thinking of adding, alot of repos have obviously been identified as hosting cracked apps, so you are just being informed of this by Cydia, it doesn't stop you from adding what you want, it's just letting you know.
