Another usual caveat is:

If these buggy objects appear in clusters, they might hint at a deeper 
problem. Are many of them created by the same user(s) or by the same 
editor(s)? If that is the case, more research might be appropriate so 
that editors or workflows can be improved. Sometimes analysis of the 
broken data can also point to a broken import or mass edit that has so 
far been undetected and will, upon closer look, have more problems than 
just these obvious ones. In such a situation, simply deleting the buggy 
objects will remove the "red flags" that would otherwise have pointed at 
the broken import or mass edits.
