if this update puts out the quick office that quick office said they were working on and a comic book viewer I would probably unroot. because those are the 2 reason why I rooted..
I still will wait and see..and once autonooter works for the new update I will feel comfertable unrooting to check it out

I have blocked the automatic update function on my Nook. I am going to wait until the devs come up with the option for rooting the new update.
With the exception of Flash (and I don't really care about Flash), I already have everything the update is offering and more. I doubt, very seriously, that the app store is going to have anything new and exciting that I can't get anywhere else!
Ditto here, except I'm probably going to wait for a pre-rooted update package to become available and read about users' experiences with the update (stability, for instance). I'm interested in Flash, because I visit a lot of websites with embedded flash videos. But it's not so super important to me that I'd unroot to get it.

I am not sure if I want an update or not. I keep my wifi off unless I am downloading a book. If I download a book after the update, I assume my NOOKcolor will automatically receive this update.
I do not know how to block an update. I have not rooted my NC.
If you've not rooted then there's no reason to not let the update happen (unless you're worried you'll download Angry Birds and not have the self control to stop playing it and use the NC as an eReader as it was intended, LOL).

To me, the biggest problem with Flash is that web designers and webmasters abuse it. It should be eye-candy, something to enhance your site. But way too many sites are all Flash (or such a high concentration of it that they might as well be 100%). My biggest pet peeve with Flash web sites is when they totally ignore the use of alt tags. If you're browsing without Flash, there should be some way to get to the content of the web site. Alt tags allow for this. Without alt tags, you (the webmaster) are telling me that I simply have to have Flash installed. Sorry, but if you (the webmaster) are so lackadaisical in your coding, I'm simply not interested enough to view your web site. I haven't reached the end of the Internet yet, so your site is just one of millions I'll never come back to.
