You know, that's more than usually insulting.  I _am_ that "electrician", 
with almost exactly 11 years experience in this area.  You've provided no 
helpful advice to fixing an existing problem, instead, to mangle your 
metaphor further, you've told Christopher that he'd be better off replacing 
his fuses with breakers.  Always a good idea, but it doesn't explain why 
there's a problem in the first place.
