Is 7 MB a few times a day really that big of a deal?

It is a big deal, especially if your on limited downloads as malwarebytes averages 5 updates a day which equates to 245meg a week or 980meg a month and alot of pensioners and people who cant afford big internet plans are limited to 1 or 2 Gig a month like my own parents who have not bought malwarebytes purely because the updates for it would but almost eat up there whole plan.

Exactly. Not all users have access to fast connections and/or unlimited bandwidth :). That's why this feature is so important, particularly for PRO users, who need to keep their database up to date in order to have effective protection.

For users of the Free version it's not nearly as important, since the Free version is just an on-demand scanner, used as a second opinion to check occasionally for infections and remove them.
