Need to know if my grounds and neutrals are connected right


If you have read his responses he doesn't think we know what we are talking about. Last I read he was telling us why he thought we were wrong.....

I would hate to add up add the years of professional experience that looks like it will be ignored.

Why?

We see it all the time, and will see it again.
Of course this is probably the worst I've seen.

At least we have provided the correct answers others can use.

Normally the light comes on when someone sees the same information again and again. it is not like there were two different opinions on whether it was OK to do what the OP was considering.

Anybody think that the OP may just be a psych major and yankin' our collective chains? How engaged we all became on what should have amounted to no more than 5-10 posts. Hard to believe anyone can be that stupid.

I'm fairly new here and I have seen similar behaviour in a few other threads. My first thought, right or wrong, was that a bored experienced electrician was having a little fun.
