Clearly, that's the wrong kind of lazy
That's kind of the definition of lazy: unwilling to work or use energy.
There is no good kind of lazy when it comes to work.

When programmers talk about "lazy" what they really mean is "well thought out, which took years of training and experience to come up with".
But then they go and talk down on themselves by calling it lazy Sigh | :sigh:
It's really hard to NOT create a big ball of mud, that's why so many projects fail and need to be rewritten (only to fail again), but somehow when you don't create a big ball of mud and do it right it's cause you're "lazy" Sigh | :sigh:

Why not call it "skilled" instead?
"I'm too skilled to do the same thing twice" sounds a lot better than "I'm too lazy to do the same thing twice" and it's the truth too Smile | :)

We all copy and paste from time to time, no shame in that.
I always say it's a right that needs to be earned, because good copy and pasting is difficult too as you need to understand what it is you're copying.
