Nice to see that I'm not the only one who got the "shut the front door" treatment. But this guy, and perhaps I, too, deserved it.

Some of us do appreciate the advice, be it negative or positive.

I don't know if you did (don't remember and didn't check) but a huge problem is the fact the guy was dealing with a rental. All areas I deal with and most I have spoken with people about will not allow a homeowner to work on a rental unit. They must hire a licensed electrician. While most jurisdictions will allow you to kill yourself and your family, they really frown on killing unsuspecting renters.
