You are right. It felt really wrong... But, I don't know if this makes things ok, but I will use some used christmas wrapping paper to make the surface less cunductive. In case I ever drop a battery upside down on the table or something! Actually, that would probably still be really bad since the paper isn't very strong.

The table is grounded through a 1 megaOhm resistor to the ground pin of an outlet.
