KUDOS for a factual, yet simple response.

To avoid possible confusion, it's a good idea to use as load something that doesn't have a lot of electronics in it. Incandescent bulb, motors, etc. Some devices may present very high impedance (and fail to short out the stray/phantom voltage) except if there's enough voltage to activate the electronics. Eg: electronic ballasts may not do the trick.
