Despite the fact that auto-updating a production site isn't *normally* a good thing
Never, ever ever ever ever ever a good thing. The ones that rely on freebee software(open-source that is out of their control) probably do deserve to crash and loose SERP to start with.
IMO, any company that switches its user base to "Auto anything" is up-to something.
Do you control the code that is executed on your site? Is there a backdoor that you don't know of?
I've been writing code for over 15 years and the only Automated thing that I know that should be done to the CODE is a BACKUP.
