It was, and then too many people got lazy and it became a problem.

Is it a problem or are you making it a problem?

Sure, people like xterminus, willysilly create awkward situations, but I think
we should just silently clean those cases up and keep working with the people
who *do* function properly.  We simply cannot protect ourselves fully
from cases like that, since the one and only way to know if a person is
worth anything is to give that person a chance to work and see what happens
in half a year. 

P.S. that word, 'lazy', I don't think it means what you think it means. ;)
