Why would a Mobo not post inside the case?

    So I have ran into this problem in the past and came up with a fix, but it is not the proper fix. I basically had to insulate the Mobo from the case with the foam that comes with it. I understand that it grounds to the case and stuff but what is inside the motherboard that prevents the post?

    Is the MOBO not supposed to touch the case? Does it indeed ground through the power supply? I also heard that the metal rings around the holes on the mobo are both for grounding and not for grounding. Do the metal risers insulate or conduct? There is so much misinformation about this it makes my head spin. What is the read deal here?
