if it were, they would REQUIRE you to upgrade
Ok, then leave your scripts at the deprecated version and see what happens to your listing. I'd say that's a requirement.
There are so many other ways to get hacked or have your site used as an open relay for spam that I just don't find this notice particularly useful. You may, I don't. I also see it as a precursor for ranking site architecture quality in the future. Like I said, next they may be checking for Wc3 compliance...you ever run Google on the W3 site? 34 errors. Yet, they may one day use that as another metric for site ranking.
If you haven't already figured it out, I love to play devil's advocate. Someone has to think unlike a lemming.
