Yeah, my fault for starting it. ;)

I was really just curious how many people in the US use high voltages or
stick with low voltage (in the form of 120 AC or even lower DC). The
feeling I'm getting is that some are comfortable with it and use high
voltages, but there's enough confusion because unlike other countries,
over 120 is relatively uncommon.
