    I'm on 2.7 or whatever was current a few months ago. Now it's all like "you should upgrade to 2.8" but I have a whole bunch of WP sites and I don't want to upgrade them all cuz I'm worried something might get goofed up.

    it's 99% going to just be security patches, you might be prone to getting hacked

    I had a few plug-ins fuck up when I went to 2.8.

    but usually wordpress has issues with plug-ins or other things with every update released, so I try to wait to see if they get it all worked out before I update

    I usually wait awhile... but then again, I have so many WP based sites I would kill myself if I updated every single one on every single update.
