------------ REPLY FOLLOWS ------------

if you were to call it a "Single Point House Ground" or a "Single
Point Tower Ground" or a "Single Point AC Mains Ground" there would be
no argument. 

But the discussion here has been looking at the tower/house/AC mains
as a single system. In that context, having two or more grounds and
calling ONE of them a "Single Point Ground" with no other qualifiers
defies common sense.

Common sense has been defied before and you are welcome to continue
the tradition if you wish. :-)
