I've never subscribed to the notion of masking errors. It's a very bad and downright sloppy approach to software problems. Anyone on my payroll doing that would be fired immediately

You are correct. If you've invested a lot of time modifying your forum then upgrades are almost like dismantling and reassembling your entire site.

I would suggest avoiding any upgrades if you can.
