From what I know, the grease is non-conductive, and according to the wikipedia page, it says...
"It is not recommended to be applied to the actual electrical conductive contacts of the connector because it could interfere with the electrical signals passing through the connector."
Now, I was wondering, if some people put it somewhere else other than the threads, wouldn't it interfere with the signal? Since some people said to do it on here, things must work....but it just makes me wonder if it would cause problems if you went bananas with it.

Works good on spark plug boots too, if you change your own plugs.

I figured that the grease is good so the o-rings don't dry out, and it makes the connection a little more waterproof. I still did the drip loops and encased everything in a box, but it's just one more layer of protection.
I was just wondering other people's experience with it, and maybe a "FYI" for those who are going to be using it.
