I wouldn't call it an annoyance, any more than the update notifier at the
top of the dashboard is annoying. If WordPress wants to save its reputation
from people who blame every exploit in it, then it needs to do everything
possible to get people to upgrade.

Instead of berating people for being normal and non-geeks, why not just give
them a useful feature that will help them stay secure. What's the harm in

I would call it annoyance.  Anyone professing themselves to be website admin should be logging into their dashboard on occasion, and anyone failing to do so has no one but themselves to blame for security threats.

I fail to see why a non-geek web admin would be considered "normal" at any rate.
