3 way wall switch

did you by any chance just install this switch
if by dangerous do you mean can your house burn down then yes it's dangerous.
Sarcasm is my friend
I'm here to learn too, i do mostly commercial/industrial/new construction and this place is a great way to pick up tips on residential from some good electrical minds. Excuse the spelling, my phone has a mind of it's own.
