The lack of programming support for the bridge was a constant headache. We hadn't been able to upgrade vBulletin or our CMS for years. One of the most important reasons to stay current on upgrades is security (this isn't news to you, I'm sure), and we also missed out on lots of new site features that we'd have liked to incorporate.
