Really, I did not know that, but I see that the instructions linked to also show that. I guess I will start doing it differently, though I have not had any issues so far.

Think of coax cable as any other type of electrical line.
Copper center conductor = positive
Braid/Foil = neutral

The connector you put on has to have good contact with the copper and the braid in order to work properly.

.....just don't get a strand of braid wrapped around the stinger (copper)
