Well. I am also an MVP. I think possibly something was misunderstood. What exactly were you hoping for?
"We seek to recognize the best and brightest from technology communities around the world with the Microsoft® Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award.
These exceptional community leaders come from a wide range of backgrounds. They are teachers, artists, doctors, engineers, as well as technologists, who actively share their high-quality, real-world technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft.
With the MVP Award, we thank these inspiring individuals for representing the voice of thousands in the community through the powerful and independent feedback they give us, and for helping our customers maximize the potential of their software.
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2010 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Windows Desktop Experience technical communities during the past year."
I see nothing in the above, in the nature of promises for further awards.

I read this:
Microsoft is a large, complex company that can be difficult to navigate. To help MVPs make the most of their award experience, we provide them with dedicated MVP Leads who serve as the MVP's main point of contact inside Microsoft, as well as an exclusive MVP Web site that keeps MVPs informed of award benefits, updates, news about their peers, and events that are occurring in their region and worldwide.
This, if it can be termed as an award, I have.
"To select your MSDN or TechNet subscription and begin taking advantage of your award benefits"
This I received – both in fact – for which I was very thankful and pleased. It gave me access to several progams which I could examine and advise others on. In the case of early releases, Betas etc, I was able to get ahead of the game and offered countless advice to other struggling new users on forums.
Maybe your expectations were too high.
I continue to contribute, which originally prompted the "award". I have no aspirations that it will, subsequently, be renewed. I am aware, whilst not mentioned, that there are many forum contributers who sign on as MVPs where, in fact, those awards have terminated after the mandatory 1 year.
