Should this really be an alert? Or can it be a console.log entry?

I’m noticing it appearing on the Poll UI Plugin because I embed the editor in a Modal, while it is still open in on the topic/create new topic.

It initially took me by surprise because I wasn’t sure what “only supporting one matcher at the moment” meant, it would be nice if this were 1) more specific, such as, “AutoComplete: only supporting one matcher in an editor at the moment” and 2) a console.log statement, since it isn’t really breaking anything (from what I can tell).
