The facts so clearly speak for themselves it's not even funny.
* Virtually no one has actually experienced and burn in here in the past 2 years or more.
* The few instances have been extreme cases and it's not clear anyone suffered irreparable damage.
* The brightness-decline curves for all plasmas are logarithmic, so it's actually far more likely burn in would occur earlier rather than later.
If someone has a serious screw-up where they do burn something in over a weekend or something, they can undo the damage by inverting the burned-in screen, either via the plasma, or with the help of a computer.
The incontrivertible fact is that the "problem" is just not that common. The corollary is that "solutions" to the problem are not really all the valuable or important.
There's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...
