Doesn't matter, it is still very relevant and good to revisit issues like these to keep people on their toes ( so to say ).
With the advent of AFCI circuit breakers this type of issue will become less and less of a problem because AFCI protection will detect this and shut down.
On a side note I sure wish siding guys and sheet rockers would use the correct length nails and screws instead of the longest ones they can buy.

Re: Need Help With A Shocking Outside Waterspout

Magnetica,This is a clear explanation of how danger lurks in neutral and ground conductors. Neutrals are pretty easy to anticipate, but current-carrying ground conductors are another story. Thanks for information to improve my delivery to my students. I'm sure you probably save a few injuries, if not a few lives with your contribution to the forum. THANKS! from all of us.
