How is this INSANITY safe?!

Benta:
What's your problem? And why is it INSANITY?

Kjelt:
I also think it is stupid to increase the voltage to 48V which can cause arcing by disconnecting, warn that new special cables are needed to comply but then keep the same connector.
Thus any old not compliant existing cable will work but is unsafe. Stupid!
Create a new hot plug safe connector and system.

The entirety of USB-C is a mess, not to mention something I've said a few times, that the connector design and quality is a joke. Folded tin (or w/e it is) as opposed to looking at the SOLID mechanical, LATCHING design of the Apple "lightning" port (for the pedants, in this sentence I am ONLY referring to the SOLID steel plug, the detents in the sides of which afford a secure, unabiguous "CLICK!" when it latches into the socket, where there are matching, sprung, domed(?) fingers which sit snugly in aforementioned detents, thus affording a secure retention method - not to mention the SOLID housing, and the tight, but not too tight tolerances between the plug and the equally well designed, SOLID socket housing.

USB-C is horrible, and I've not even covered the electrical aspects in this post.

It's 48V, not hundreds of volts. PoE uses 48V, ok not delivering hundreds of watts but the power is still significant, and that isn't burning down buildings left and right.
