Valid point or not?
Yes, there could be a poor connection at both points, but the chances of having that bad of a connection to cause enough heat to melt or at least damage a adapter are VERY slim. Now I can see a poor connection at the pedestal, due to the high use and burned contacts, causing damage to the plug but you will get that on a adapter or a bog bone. It just seemed that everyone was blaming a adapter as the problem. But as they say " to each his own"
