Why don't all wordpress installs auto-update again..?

Forgotten wordpress blogs are becoming the new scourge of the web.

It's a shame to see so much old/good content magically turn into viagra adverts.

I want to manual install WordPress updates so I can maintain plugin compatibility. I accept things like the lack of auto updates as the price of having rich plugin capabilities.

At least with the way WP is currently designed, a forced update might break many sites who are using plugins and theme frameworks that will also need updates. In addition, it's not uncommon to find major updates that are incompatible with hosting limitations, e.g., a PHP or MySQL version. In theory, though, that would be a great benefit.

I haven't run into any issues with updates but I have chosen matured plugins and themes/theme frameworks.

Not that I've seen. I have about 20 of them in place and the upgrades went fine.
