it's not G's responsibility to notify you that your scripts are out of date
Correct, however it's really nice that they do. No one is forcing you to upgrade, they are just notifying you that your site is not current.
This is in no way a Big Brother intrusion, if it were, they would REQUIRE you to upgrade.
