lazy

lazy


In open politics, to be lazy generally means to
  1. fail to copy strict naming conventions from name precedents
  2. fail to open links and close link?s
  3. fail to cite credible sources or attribute? quotes
  4. avoiding issue/position/argument form

Open politics itself might be stated as determination to do all these things, and accepting responsibility to correct those who do them all.

Other things like failing to follow the style manual or editor guidelines in content is fairly easily corrected:
  • Facts are usually relatively easy to discover or disprove, but if they are from obscure sources, perhaps not.
  • Quotes likewise, if they are not easily found on the Internet.

Some people wrongly believe that naming conventions are also easy to correct after the fact. They are not. Much of the success or failure of large public wikis depends on willingness to work closely to very strict naming standards.
