This NG is used to field many questions upon the subject of Electrical Engineering, upon its technicalities, and upon safety issues.
Do standards therefore matter?
Does it matter that someone says, "mHz" when they mean, "MHz"?
Does it matter that there are those that think and practice the use of the dB as a specific for voltage comparison when the dB is only ever defined for power comparison?
Does it matter that ignorance is engendered by using, "antennas" as the plural for, "antenna" when it is, "antennae" that is correct?
Does it matter that those "in the know" use handling practices that might be safe at 12V when they're using 230V (or 110V in the Third World)?
Does it matter at all?
