I am sure you are correct but the manner it is embedded onto this site makes it appear it either belongs to this site or this site endorses it.

Yeah, that's why I said "it totally looks like it is part of this site".

Same here, it confused me. Not sure we can do anything about advertising but I've asked the powers-that-be to look at it.

Wow, crazy bad content. I've removed the links to that content on the bottom of the threads. I'll see about getting the rest of it removed.

Thanks

LOL glad I'm not the only one that was amused by it.

I have a basic understanding of 3 phase, and his explanation is like, woah. Someone who does not know anything about 3 phase would not get anything out of that, other then be more confused. And 3 phase does not "come into the house" And it's more then "constant voltage". That is a bad way to describe it imo.

Guess it comes to show, you really have to watch where yo get advice from on the internet.

LOL I just watched the one about neutrals. "Basically it sends a signal to the panel to tell the circuit that it's been completed" waaaaa? LOL. Wow.

Videos like this are actually dangerous for people who know enough to get by and do things to code more or less. A video like that can really throw someone off.

Wow. He also says you need to use silver wire instead of copper and aluminum if you need good conductivity.

Introduces himself as a "handyman, from New York City". These are so bad and wrong, they almost seem to be intentionally incorrect for somebody's idea of a joke. Problem is that people would believe the crap coming out of his mouth.
