Yes. I do. I think it is absolutely and utterly useless, and will not
help anybody anywhere.

They have no reason to blame anybody but themselves right now.

Good grief man, even when the notification was added to the admin
screens, people clamored and yelled for some way to disable *that*. Do
you really think that an admin email enabled by default will go over
well? I've already seen too many posts out there complaining about how
WP is too naggy. This is only going to make things worse, and increase
(not decrease) many people's opinion that WordPress is insecure.

It doesn't make any difference whose fault it is. That won't stop
anybody from complaining, loudly.
