That’s always the conundrum, ain’t it?

Fix it or Band-Aid it?

I’ve done both, both have their place.

It usually depends on how OCD I’m feeling at the time. [emoticon]

Same going on here.... it is less a problem with the wire and more a problem with me.

I'm surprised it isn't 10/3 with ground. Anyway, if you splice in a new wire, won't you have to the insulate the splice?

That’s what the wire nuts and J-box do.

More connections are worse than no connections and simply wrap the wire with proper electrical tape and carry on.

but when you get a scratch, a band aid is preferable to putting your arm in a sling. too many sling users here.

Bandaids fall off eventually. Fixes do not.

This and a Band Aid looks cheap and quick, makes people wonder. The correct fix looks like you care, and do things correctly.
