MOSS 2007: You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items

We tried to set up alerts for users for a list with customized permissions. Following error appeared: 

You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items. 

Resolution:

MOSS: Manage / Delete Users Alerts

Alerts against documents, list items, discussions and so on can be deleted / modified as under: 

Move from “Site Actions” to “Site Settings”. Here, select “Users Alerts” under “Site Administration”. Select the user from “Display Alerts for” drop down list and click on “Update”. Alerts against this user will be displayed. Select the alerts and delete them.

Same works for SharePoint with little modification.
