wow. thats a new one.That just opens it up for gas to get inside and foul it out

the goal for any engineer/designer/builder is to get " the gas inside" the plug as fast as possible. thats the whole name of the game. the faster
" gas can get inside" the plug, the quicker combustion takes place.
now, i do agree that shortening the negative electorode on a stock ingition system is a bad idea, simply because there is less surface area for the spark to take place, and will tax a stock ignition system. and that could be why you foul plugs, but its not because the " gas gets in there". its because the ignbition voltage is not great enough to compansate for the decreaced surface area/larger gap.
hot rodders and racers have been shortening the negative electorde for years with great sucess. as a matter of fact, back in the day that was THE setup to have. but of course they all had aftermarket ignition systems to fully exploit the benefits gained from a shoter electorde.
