I'm just looking for somebody to point me to a factual, professional article that states every single Plasma in the world buzzes, as folks are claiming.

If this is truly widespread then Samsung has built a defective product and needs to issue a fix....
No, you don't sound like a tool.
This issue is dependent on so many factors, as I said, such that it was, and is, bound to be a topic of great discussion.
I'll add one more factor, varying psychological sensitivity, or to put it simply, how much things bother a person.
Though some buzzers are so annoying, they would bother the vast majority.
Whether every plasma ever made, or currently made, buzzes is not important to me (though the 'experts' say they do); the key, that some of us have said, is that we have heard buzzing on every plasma we have heard. It doesn't mean any where near all of them bother me or other people.
If your hearing is great, then probably you got one of the 'good ones' of the plasma crop and/or high frequency buzzing doesn't bother you that much.
Our halogen flood lights are very low decibels of sound, but the high frequency make them so darn annoying, the quieter the room is. In a quiet room, I dislike them, and when dimmed they get worse. I could tolerate them, and had for many years, but recently I decided, why bother; it is not worth it just for aesthetics and more light.
