Its not a matter of ill-will on Lg's part, its incompatability of the roms and the components that they are updating.

I i think they know what they are doing. You should never take an ota when rooted.

Think of it this way: If you put then engine of a Corolla into a Prius, it wont work. Not only is it not the right size, but all the belts, cables, wires, tubes and battery are not compatible with that engine, unless you modify all those components.
