In my mind the solution is, "don't take short cuts" and by this I mean do all your own work and do not allow programs to tell you what they want to enter.

I don't let FTM enter places or sources I enter them all by hand. I set guidelines that I follow for data entry. It has been noted on this blog that sometimes hints will generate different source titles when they are from the same source. This is due in part because what one person sees as two sources another person sees as the same source.

Even for me sometime I will read the source and think I should name it one thing then after reviewing my source list I will see that I did enter another source with a slightly different title.
