Yes, by request of the OP I was told. Not surprised.
Too bad.
I think I finally understand the basis for the differences in the views of some of us and the OP's.
Basically it's the need to use a consistent polarity direction for current into or out of a circuit node (in this case the Neutral node).

Which I said over and over. I specifically asked him to measure the current into neutral. So he produced a simulation with one side going in and the other going out of neutral, which resulted in my resistor flip “trick.”

Perhaps the OP never studied node current analysis or the required convention for that.

MOD NOTE: Locked.

The TS's question has been fully answered -- the thread was locked pending moderation and the TS then requested that it stay locked.

No purpose served by this thread going down the same rabbit hole.
