I don't worry about it.   I use a shot of glue before I nail them.    The only thing I worry about is not shooting a finger.

Yes,  favor one side, otherwise it can be a hassle putting in the foundation.    I prefer staples over nails.

ditto the glue.  sometimes i forget, but the staples with the glue will hold up to about  anything.  i sure wouldn't redo those staples that ended up in the groove.  just work around them.  the bees will fix it if you have to mess up a little corner of foundation.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
