That does raise a question. If the chassis of the computer is bonded to the
electrical ground as well as the station ground bus, does that increase
your chances of ground loops or potential increased noise from dirt on your
house power circuit?
No, for several reasons. First, there is no such thing as a "ground loop," and searching for them CAUSES problems with power line noise. Second, proper bonding and AC power wiring, as described in this link, PREVENTS the coupling of power-related noise into equipment.
I have my PC bonded via bolt through one of the van
vents on the chassis. If it's doing much I can't tell, there's so much else
going on at my house that my noise floor is pretty high anyway.

Please go and STUDY the link I provided. http://k9yc.com/GroundingAndAudio.pdf
