hat 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.

This should NEVER be done. It is unsafe, and violates Electrical Codes everywhere in North America.
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.

There is no such thing as a ground loop, and there is no such thing as "RF ground." I suggest that you delete that video -- based on this post, you don't know what you're talking about, so you're recommending very bad practice.
