    Why does this keep happening to me, I'm getting really tired of it. Fixing it whenever it shows up is annoying, but not nearly as bad as the urge to check every vertex ever whenever I find one like this.

    It's possible that you're making funny shapes, and in order to prevent them making an invalid solid, hammer is moving vertices around. Sometimes copy and pasting, usually from other map files, does this too, in which case you can use "paste special" from the edit menu instead.

    Shift-dragging shouldn't cause anything bad as long as whatever you're copying isn't borked.

    Some of them were just invalid solids it seems. But then some others, were turned invalid by the misalignment. Huh.
