Aside from using excessive pressure or a dirty cloth, there's not much that you can do wrong by gently rubbing a screen. That's basic maintenance. Panasonic has some advice on cleaning screens that I found quite easily using Google, for those who don't know:
-Wipe the panel surface gently using only a cleaning cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth.
-If the surface is particularly dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in a weak detergent solution and then wring the cloth to remove excess liquid. Use this cloth to wipe the surface of the display panel. Then wipe it evenly with a dry cloth, of the same type, until the surface is dry.
-Do not scratch or hit the surface of the panel with fingernails or other hard objects. Furthermore, avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinner; otherwise, the quality of the surface may be adversely affected.
-There are also specific cleaners on the market designed for cleaning Plasma and LCD TVs which can be purchased at various electronic dealers.
