The plugs themselves even look confused over their life purpose.

That is correct.

Found that an outlet in a bathroom was attached to the light and only worked when the light was on... with bare wires and wire nuts extending the line in the wall to get to the box for the outlet, which of course wasn't grounded. No inspector would have found that unless they plugged something in and turned the light on and off.

I've never had an inspector find anything meaningful.
My inspector saw something odd on the chimney three stories up, got the big ladder out(this was pre drones everywhere) and it turned out to be a tree starting to grow out of a giant crack. The sellers were pretty screwed at that point because it required a tear down and rebuild all the way to the attic floor. Screwed them out of money and saved us a bunch.

Bah I feel bad reading this thread now. I always use these things to connect three prong cords to those cheapy two prong indoor extension cords, and use them to connect holiday lights and such.

I usually have to dremel down the wide end of the connector so it fits into two prong outlets EEK!

Please never buy these, and slick deals should never post these as deals. Very dangerous abs without reading comments someone may assume they're safe when they usually aren't.
There are valid, code following situations that people can use these adapters in. You might as well complain that hammers show up on SD because someone might use it to build something unsafe.

Gfci protects you from electrocution, but lack of an equipment ground can cause premature failure in complex electronics like TVs and computers that expect a ground. Nothing you can do about it, but that's why you're supposed to label it.

The 2015 NEC permits ungrounded plugs to either be two prongs or three prong, GFCI protected and labeled. Doesn't have to be done with GFCI outlets, you can use GFCI breakers (but if your local code requires AFCI in bedrooms etc then consider using outlet gfci protection instead because it's cheaper than dual mode afci/gfci breakers).

Most surge protectors will fail to neutral first and fail to ground second, so it's still worth it to use them on ungrounded outlets.

These are for occasional use when you need to plug a 3 pronged plug into a 2 pronged outlet.

Most of us can make simple repairs and upgrades to bring something up to code. For some of the examples of poor wiring mentioned here, I would hire someone who does this for a living.
