Typical!. Prevent something that can actually be quite useful because
it's possible for it to be dangerous if the devices (i.e. the extension
cables) are mis-constructed. Don't actually deal with the real problem,
namely getting extension cables made properly in the first place.

Incidentally, I never buy read-made extension cables, I always make my
own. It's the only way to be sure they're made properly. (Oh, and don't
get me started on moulded mains plugs. Suffice it to say I cut those off
and replace them with proper plugs as soon as I get the device!).
