Hey, shit-4-branez.  Let me clear it up for you with 4 simple facts.

1)  I have a generator.
2)  I b-a-c-k-f-e-e-d my main panel with it.
3)  It's SAFE
4)  Nobody can or will get fried down the line.

Simple enough for ya?  Probably not.

You forgot number 5

5) It's illegal, but you don't care.

It's illegal to drive above the posted speed limit too.  Please don't waste
everyone's time by saying you've never done that either.

You, easily, endanger more people by speeding than you do by backfeeding a
generator (assuming you don't pull the main).  And, as other's have said
more than once, the linemen have procedures to follow to protect them
against such situations so they don't get fried.

I am in control of disconnecting my main.  When you speed, you are not in
control of the action/reaction of others.

The point being, if you're hung up on this just because "it's illegal" -
you need to wake up and face reality.  It's illegal to spit on the sidewalk
too.  It's illegal to do a lot of things that people will continue to do
with no harm to others.  

The bottom line all along has been that it's 100% safe with this situation.
All your assinine preaching will not change that.

Care to continue to beat the, long dead, horse?  I'm game.

This is fun.... poking a stick at someone who likes to show their talent to

I have shit on my brains....and I do generators for a living... so the shit
that is on my brain certainly ain't on Richards... and he keeps proving it
to the group.

I'll tell my clients that "Richard" said it was SAFE, so they shouldn't have
a problem with this approach.  I'll tell that to the electrical inspector
too.  I'll even show them your email for proof and ask the inspector if it
is "Simple enough for ya".  I'll try that line on the HR representative who
will be the next to want to talk to me.  Then the HR rep will ask me who is
accountable?  Who is "Richard"?  Lets hire Richard.

Richard, stop trolling for answers when you already have them made up in
your mind.

Enough said.  You can repeat what you have already stated which you are
likely to do... and think of a few more names to call others....    You
probably have the same attitude with others... police, doctors... what do
they know...  Richard knows best.  Have fun with your generator.  And I'll
have fun with the hundreds I look after.

Do we bow down now or when you leave the room again?
