Yes the article is somewhat disturbing in several respects. Despite reference to adhearence to ASHI standards, it still expects us to see through walls. Sorry, but I was born without superman x-ray vision.

However, in defense of the homeowner's expectations, the inspector probably was not very thorough in his job. All he had to do was use a cheap electrical outlet tester on at least a few outlets in each room to know that at least portions of the the wiring was ungrounded. With at least some of the outlets showing ungrounded and the age of the home, he should have then suspected knob & tube wiring still existed behind the walls and looked a little harder - or at least reported the presence of some ungrounded wiring.
