Thyat guyz electrican has an add-on 'let's try this instead of doing it right' hazard setup in the dude's home and it's rigged like something from Wiring For Dummies. I don't like or approve of the setup. Come on, the dude stated that he was getting a ground from a GFI in a circuit without a ground wire. How much more do I need to learn to understand that he is either a moron or a BS'r?
Adding GFCI's to an ungrounded system is not wrong. Wrong is not following code. Wrong is doing something like sinking a "20 foot" ground rod and running leads to your grounded devices. There's no indication that the system was installed wrong. What led you to that conclusion?
You should note that the "dude" who was talking to the OP was not an electrician, and didn't need to use the correct terminology to describe that he was resetting the GFCI. Is anyone who is not up on electrical terminology a "moron or a BS'r"?
