It's acknowledged that ext3's lack of journal checksumming can cause corruption
It may only be semantics, but it's unlikely that the lack of journal checksumming causes corruption, although it may make it difficult to detect.
As for LVM, I've never seen the point. Just another layer of ones and zeros between the data and the processor. I never use it, and I'm very surprised some distros seem to use it by default.
