Life is easier, simpler, cheaper, and better, if you just do things. Just make things work, don't follow silly rules, rules are for people with autism.

Rules allow us to live together in some sort of mutually agreed upon harmony. I.e., so *you* don't decide to drive through an intersection when it suits your desires, regardless of the desires or needs of others.
So *you* don't build a home out of bailing wire and cardboard that jeopardizes the homes of your neighbors.
So *you* don't walk into a club and shoot people of whom you are afraid.

No, those are guidelines. Anyone with sense runs a red light when nobody is in the way. Anyone with any sense breaks the speed limit.
Creating a rule that you mustn't murder someone doesn't stop murderers. We don't murder people because we don't want to. People who want to murder still do it even though it's illegal.

That's a stupid rule. I wouldn't care what my neighbour does on HIS LAND.

See above, that rule has no effect.

Exactly! If *I* want to set up a meat rendering plant on MY PROPERTY, I should be allowed to do so! If you don't like the smell from the process -- or, all the traffic as carcases are delivered at all hours of the day and night, *you* should relocate!
Likewise, if I want to burn tires, have an open sewer, host loud parties, etc. it's none of YOUR concern!

When we did our remodel, I was tracing wires (ROMEX) to figure out where they all went. One went into a wall from which there was no possible exit! And, no fixture/device to which it might connect.
Turned out builder had simply forgotten to put the outlet on the end of the cable -- and no one had ever noticed it "missing".
Then you get the homeowners who *think* they know what they're doing...
Like whoever replaced the "three-way" light switch in the garage with a regular switch -- and "reasoned" that the third conductor (traveler) should obviously go to that THIRD screw on the switch... (you know, the GREEN one!)
Of course, as the Jboxes are all plastic, nowadays, this went unnoticed.
Until the other switch was in the "wrong" position when I tried to use the miswired switch: "Yikes! Why is the mounting hardware *not*?"
Or, the neighbor down the street with the ROMEX running across the lawn to the *pump* located adjacent to his garage.
Or, the folks with ROMEX stapled to the facia boards, exposed to our continuous heat and sun.
Yes, easier, simpler, cheaper -- and WRONG!
Burn your own house down -- and be sure none of the embers drift onto your neighbors' properties (or, alternately, don't be upset if embers from a neighbor's "uncontrolled bonfire" end up setting YOUR place on fire.
(The folks who seem to think they have absolute authority/justification to do what they want on THEIR property tend to have no problem imposing restrictions on what their NEIGHBORS can/can't do)

I thought you were nuts, but that connector strip is far superior to a wire nut. Maybe you live in an area that requires them? Europe has banned wire nuts, but I suspect it may be for economic reasons.
Anyway, remember: Building to Code is the WORST you are allowed to build anything. It's okay to build better, just not any worse.

No. It's just that's the easiest and most common way to attach wires together. I virtually never see anything else used (except for a junction box with similar as part of the insides).

I wasn't aware (not that I care) that wire nuts were banned. They are readily available for sale in the UK. But I find them very difficult to get to stay on. I've only ever seen them used by car radio fitters, and most usually they've broken.

Allowed is not something I care about. I care only about functionality.
