comment What is the purpose of the “grounding” tab/wire on a 3-prong to 2-prong adapter?
@maple_shaft Your comments would make a good answer. Explaining how it would work with both metallic and nonmetallic cable would make it a great answer.

@Ecnerwal I'm simply playing devils advocate, to try and inspire a good answer. Maple_Shaft had a fairly good answer in his comment, and I was trying to get him to expand on it.

Just because I know the answer (sort of), doesn't mean I can't ask the question.

@Ecnerwal I'll argue against it's use, until somebody can provide enough evidence to persuade me the other way. And by evidence I of course mean something from a reliable source.

comment Why do my LED Christmas lights glow when plugged into a light fixture via an adapter?
Is the light switch inside a "smart" switch, dimmer, timer, or is it a simple snap switch?

Dryers are designed to run with clothes in them, running them empty could damage the appliance.
