Non other than Rob Grady himself told me that is what melts Fuse #7 (remember: DC electrons flow from negative to positive -- Ben Franklin got it backwards). If your grounds are inadequate, it's the positive side that heats up.
That is total and utter rubbish*. Increasing resistance reduces overall 
current but the point of resistance starts to dissipate power in the 
form of heat.

You can't add a series resistor in one place in a simple circuit and 
expect a different place to get hotter. If Rob Grady really did tell you 
that, and you're not mis-quoting him (and let's face it, you have a 
penchant for precisely that), then he is wrong.

(* except the bit about the direction of real current flow - and 
electrons are neither DC nor AC, but they are negatively charged)
