Windows Service Pack Automatic Upgrades Blocker

I am reading this article saying the blocker will expire in the coming months.  We customize the registry on our company's PCs to point to our Windows Software Update Server to get update - not using GPO.  Do you think we will be affected by what is mentioning in this article?

As far as our servers, we use Windows 2000 and Windows 2003.  They should not be affected, right?

As long as on your Wsus server you have not approved the service packs they will not install. That however won't prevent anyone from pointing his browser to the Microsoft Update website and get the SP from there.

Double check your automatic approval to not include service packs. Approve servicepacks by hand. (e.g. Office, sql server etc..)
