I am sometimes prone to sweeping analogies, and as I read Mike Starr's
response
to this thread a whopper rises to the surface:

Sending out incomplete documentation gives as poor an impression of the
product--and of the company that released it--as meeting a job candidate who
shows up punctually for an interview, but with uncombed hair, beard stubble,
and pajama
pants protruding from unzipped trousers. Yeah, you can meet a deadline, but
I'm
not impressed by it.

For what it's worth 8^)
