So I just refused delivery for the second time on a brand new Samsung PN60F8500. On both tv's, the black bottom back edge had popped out of its groove and hangs down and is visible from the front. I have attached a picture that is not great but should demonstrate the issue.

Both tv's were purchased from amazon 1 week apart.

I hate to break it to you, but that's how it's designed. It didn't pop out.

These TVs don't have fans so that's most likely an additional vent for circulation.

Well that's very poor design. If the TV is placed even slightly above normal viewing height on a wall mount, it looks ugly. The cheaper f series plasmas don't have this.
