Never ignore an error.

You can’t simply pretend it didn’t happen.

Silent failures will screw you over. They will lead to corrupt data in the system, and it will be incredibly hard to track down the source of the corruption. It can also lead to huge financial losses as well.

If you can’t handle the error, signal the failure up to the calling method. The buck has to stop somewhere. Pretending things will be okay is a major rookie mistake.
