Not all places have the same code, This is not a US only site as many are here from other countries and code and the enforcement of it differs.
What is illegal, improper(in whose opinion?) or code violating can vary greatly.

Re-read the statement. There is NOTHING mentioned there about permits, or the U.S., or any other specific locality.

The warning is about NOT DOING, and NOT PROMOTING the DOING OF ----- ANYTHING CONSIDERED ILLEGAL (in your area):

I did read the statement.
Unfortunately some hear think their code (or their interpretation of it) is "the code".

Personally I think that's another good reason for anyone on here to have their location in their profile ... I feel it should be mandatory. That way anyone responding can factor in location rather than guessing what may or may not apply for them. Just a thought

not to my surprise the encased post wasn't gonna fly with the inspector. My friends brought his backhoe over and we dug it out. A proper footing has been poured, but the deck extension is on hold for now.
