Reading this post was complicated.

I underlined what I thought were sentences. Care to comment on them, as each one is not true if I am right in what I underlined.
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.

I agree with you petey.

It is not against code to:
Share neutrals.
You do not have to allways pigtail neutrals (there are some exceptions).

The dishwasher/disposal can not be on the SABC(small appliance branch circuits).

SABC- two are required -20a

And so it goes,R
