As mike said, it entirely depends on your eyes.
If you have not seen them then you are like most everyone else and they are not a problem.
If you want to see an example of what it looks like for the small percentage of people who can see then Here is an example:
I used the "video" feature on my cheap digital camera to record the video below of my Pro-151fd.
When I watch this scene directly on my TV, I can't see any phosphor trail whatsoever. none, ZIP, Zero.
but I can see them in this homemade video while watching it on my LCD computer monitor..
Somehow, recording my plasma with my cheap camera, and then playing the video is maginfying the issue to where i can see it..
But I have never caught a glimse of this while viewing anything directly on my plasma.
my eyes can't detect the different phosphor decay times, but my cheap video camera can.
Watch the ending of the video when it plays a scene from "pans labyrinth" and look at the green/yellowish trails as the monster waves his arms around.
Somehow, by me videotaping my TV and then playing it on my computer, it makes the phosphor trails visible.
