"deny" does not force Squid to "accept and ignore". I think you are
describing the effects of the opposite setting:

  sslproxy_cert_error allow all

The actual "deny all" configuration means "do not allow any error to get
through". We should have used custom ACL verbs if the default allow/deny
are causing confusion among the best of us.
