There is no such thing as an AC power ground lift. The correct term, and

Calling it anything else should be avoided, because that makes it sound
like something clever which the pros do. Rest assured, they don't.

You _always_ want your case grounded, unless you have double insulation,
and in that case, your power plug is two-pin only to begin with.

Any artist I catch on any stage I manage with tape across their ground
connectors can clock off early, with no show.

The only responsible and reasonable thing to do is a _signal_ ground
lift. Period.
