Shameless has probably given up and hired a real electrician to fix that little old light fixture but he doesn't want to admit defeat on here.

I will say to clear the record, IF you have the old knob and tube type wiring, that can, and might be a issue?  That didn't have a ground wire, it was only a 2 wire type thing.  I am not sure if the LED lights need a ground or not?  I have hooked some up without and no issue, just don't tell the inspector/home owner! Ya will need a good electrician to figure out that old stuff like that, for it can and will get ya back!

Knob and Tube wiring is actually quite safe IF you don't over load it and the 'grounds' that we now have( the bare copper or green wires) do NOT carry power.
LEDs do NOT have to be grounded unlike some FL tube units( yeah, read the ballast for instructions...)
Knob and tube is supposed to be legal here in Ontario but INSURANCE companies force homeowners to upgrade. This can easily cost 5 to 10,000 Canucks.
