I am not sure about disabling the automatic customization feature, but
once you have configured individual symbols you will not get prompted
again.

In your example, manually adding (put 'upcase-region 'disabled nil) to
your .emacs will disable future prompts for this particular setting.

Using the following code, I have extracted a list of symbols for which
the "disabled" property has been set in my configuration:

(mapatoms (lambda (sym)
     (when (find 'disabled (symbol-plist sym))
          (insert (format "%s\n" (symbol-name sym))))))

erase-buffer
narrow-to-region
set-goal-column
narrow-to-page
upcase-region
scroll-left
dired-find-alternate-file
erc-remove-text-properties-region
downcase-region

Once you have established which functions you need to disabled, you
can add something like this in your .emacs:

(mapcar (lambda (sym) (put sym 'disabled nil))
              '(downcase-region upcase-region))

Of course, the above code assumes that you want to have access to all
the features considered confusing or unsafe for people less familiar
with Emacs.
