They have used and abused each and every consumer out there for the last time, the LAST TIME I say! No longer will we sit idly by, watching our televisions and enjoying the content presented thereon, duped by malicious and nefarious claims of excellent picture quality dreamed up by some marketing department somewhere. Even though we already knew that they were full of malarkey in the first place!
We will huddle in our dark rooms, cameras, monitors, and meters in hand, adroitly and astutely verifying every nebulous and non-specific claim made by EVERY manufacturer of EVERY television, after being unceremoniously DUPED by this behemoth of malicious corporate disregard for customer confidence. They have taken our very INNOCENCE, I tell you! The days of watching what is ON the television are OVER!
And when we think that maybe we might have seen some change in quality or even a minute and otherwise undetectable divergence from what we think our perception might have been of an image presented on a theretofore unfamiliar to us television monitor of any description from here on out, whether it be hours, days, weeks, months, years, or any combination or permutation thereof later, and whether we have any actual memory or verifiable proof that there is an actual difference, WE WILL NOT BE SILENT!
We shall make our voices heard, to every lowly customer service agent be they staged in Detroit or New Delhi, whether they could conceivably address our plight or not. We shall scream from the telephones on the 800 numbers our outrage, our incensitude, our ANGER, for our misuse and abuse - or even the assumed abuse of our brothers and sisters that might or could conceviably be so affected at some time eventually even if we personally have not suffered such - at the hands of their masters, and we shall demand calls back from their supervisors!
We shall call for FIRMWARES! Or perhaps EXTENDED WARRANTIES to cover potential vagaries of time ad infinitum! We insist upon TECH VISITS for every seemingly specious suggestion of less than indicated quality we may care to make! HARDWARE FIXES! COUPONS! REBATES! OH, HEARTLESS AND SOULLESS CORPORATIONS, HEAR OUR CRIES!
We shall make our sentences read on every forum and review site in every nook of every cranny of the world wide intertubes, and we shall not rest until every thread on every page of every website reeks with the foul odor that our festering outrage can produce, whether the discussions thereon have anything to do with our issue or not! THEY CANNOT SQUELCH OUR DISCONTENT, FOR NOW AND EVERMORE IS ITS WINTER!
SOMEONE MUST PAY!
(But probably not for another panasonic. At least until we get some opinions on the 2010 models. Unless the price is really good. Or maybe if we have to return the Samsung for buzzing or the LG for IR. Then maybe. But we don't have to like it. AND WE SHAN'T)
