I get that the desire here is to accumulate data, so the fact I can no longer glance at the poll results and see what they're saying (lots to process) is not important.
That said, it's 100% clear that assuming people are capable of self-reporting this problem -- and it's fairly easy to understand -- there is a problem here with at least some of these sets. I suspect the build date info won't really tell you much if nothing else because relatively speaking you'll find more people who have purchased sets already than are brand new buyers.
Another helpful thing people could do is to post within the thread when they noticed the problem relative to their purchase. Don't bother with whether it developed over time or not -- no offense, but I doubt you actually know for a lot of reasons. But it would be interesting to see if there's any data to be pulled from that, or if it was mostly people checking their sets as a result of being asked (or talking about it) here.
There's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...
