Save us from free training at home centers

I just got an e-mail inquiry from someone regarding the purpose of staples.

Some COMPLETE incompetent at a major national home center professed in a free electrical wiring course that one of the purposes for using staples is "that when you staple the wiring to the joists you are not merely securing the wires firmly in place, but the steel staples act as snuffers when there is a bad electrical wire burn. The heat reaches the staple which in turn will melt the sheating and cause the white wire to short with the black, thereby finally cutting off any supply."

This is absolutely not true.!

Please stop teaching this idiocy!

In fact, please stop teaching anything about electrical wiring at all.
