What having a decent ground does is eliminate the possibility  of ground
loops provided the ground is lifted from the third pin of the AC plug. I
did a comprehensive RFI video on the subject and show how ground loops can
happen and what to do to eliminate them. Quite possibly the #1 cause of
RFI. You can watch the video in the link below.
