    How would people know if the phrase had not been published.
    The quotation is listed in the compendium of famous quotations by members of the literati.

    Why would everyday people care? Conversation would come to an end if we all had to worry about saying something that had already been said.

    So I ask that you watch all threads (I mean all threads) from this point on and make sure a quote is not plagiarized and TIA

    Watching all threads is your job not mine. I will point out literary theft every chance I get.

    Now, if your priority is to have this site overran by charlatans. . .more power to you.

    Another gibberish? Your call.

    This forum explains it every other day, but your advice is duly noted....so following i would probably dwell on the difference betwixt earthing and that which provides equopotential via bonding pieces/parts

    That said the long winded version may end up going down the noodle rathole, because our lovely NEC's grounding /grounded matrix often will disguise what is in reality a return path cloaked in the guise of a GEC.

    This is where even a tenured spark such as myself am often at a loss ,and refer to other systems for the sake of enlightened comparatives to 'think outta the nec box'....

    ground rod driven 8' into the ground. then we can talk linguistics.

    Because, if you ask me, at one point the NEC truly thought the earth had major functions in equal potential, shock reduction and assistance in fault clearing. Now its simply doing damage control basically trying to say 'but we knew it all along, you just don't understand our select choice of words'


    Further compounded by the fact in half the world the soil of the actual EGC...
