Is there a way to prevent the Multi-select text from showing up red once you have removed a response option?

I have a few multi-select fields where we update the response option values about once a quarter. New response options are added and some are removed. This causes the values that were removed to show up in red on reports.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? I realize that the response option is no longer valid, but it was at one point. So it makes it seem like there is an error in the data when there really isn't.

Is it possible to hide response options so the user can't see or select them?

Lastly, is there a reason the multi-select fields display differently in reports? It makes them stand out like a sore thumb. Would be great if the text list looked the same as the other fields. Thank you in advance!

You could make a new field to show on reports.

ToText([My Multi Select  field])

See if you like the appearance of that better.
