@arizonadude... I see it just a twinky-dink different than you do. This probably automated email from the gorg is a BEG that you keep on doing biz with them as they have noticed YOU AIN'T doing biz with them anymore. A DESPERATE ATTEMPT to get your dollars flowing once again (and that beg being sadly engineered by brainiacs without a clue).
2010 is the year the gorg melts down, even though the biz plan still works (sorta) as long as they can take the hits for privacy issues, monopoly, streetview, and their slightly sinister scraping of websites for their ads in the serps continues.
Adwords had half a chance of being an ad market, but it futzed out too many ways, too many times, and HURT those who participated that only chuckles should be sent in reply to the gorg demands that dead sites correct their landing pages.
Aside: If you think about it, gorg lives in the PAST of all their data collected. Their cached sites. Their refusal to honor 404, 410... X-Robots and all that other stuff we try to tell them to give only CURRENT and FRESH results...
Rather than argue, just send: "I liked the old Google." and let it go at that. Sooner---rather than later---the gorg will collapse upon its immense collection of OUT DATED AND NO LONGER IN SERVICE data.
One reason I'm courting Bing and Yahoo these days. But that's a different conversation.
