I think the usual theory is that good data will overwhelm bad data. The problem is that assumes that the people entering bad data are outnumbered by folks willing to put in the effort to put in good data. Essentially, that those who will add good data for fun outnumber those who will add bad data for fun. Unfortunately that is frequently not true.

TLDR: there are more assholes than hobbyist cartographers.
