Or maybe people were too busy to fix it.

I recently reverted two large scale
copyright violations (one was on my 
todo list for months).

I have lists of about 100k automatically
detected mistakes, not found by JOSM

I have opened more than 200 issues on
various bug trackers of  OSM software that I can
and want to fix.

There are many OSM notes on my city.
One of them is about an incorrectly
split road.
Etc etc (and all that is just OSM activities
that are mostly entertainment/hobby in my case)
Presence of such ways is indicator,
but just because N mappers are
active nearby does not mean that they
all N agree with that tagging

And for basically any kind of mistake
I can find many cases where it happens.
Again, have you tried comparing
popularity of both methods in 
region where you are not editing?
