I went to a training seminar on electrical with some other home inspectors.

Also he said he did not write up any splice from old tube and knob wiring that was not in a junction box as a safety issue.
I always write these up a safety issues, am I wrong in doing this. I hate to cause unnecessary panic for my clients.
