Your email illustrates the problem very well. Otto (with all due respect)
can't fathom a circumstance where an email would be helpful to users as a
reminder that there is a new version available. He can't imagine a person
who won't install the plugin (because they don't know it exists), who
doesn't log in to their admin every day, and who doesn't subscribe to all
the WordPress feeds or mailing lists, yet needs these reminders.

And if they do exist, they (due to their utter n00bness) deserve to get
hacked or shouldn't be using WordPress to begin with. Screw 'em.

I think some of us have been power users too long.
