It links to the privacy options page (where I put the option). Selecting yes or no will make the nag go away. I didn't separate options for core and plugins. That can easily be 2.3.1 or 2.4, but this quick and simple patch should be easy to get into 2.3 and help curve any problems.
Yea and turns update checking off. It's stupid to turn of a whole
feature just because you don't want it to do something it doesn't need
anyway: transmit the url.
