There it is! Just last week, I was talking to a Panasonic rep. and he asked me "Can the image retention myth finally be put to rest, because it's been eliminated." - that prompted me to ask "You are willing to say it is impossible on a modern plasma?" to which he replied "No, if somebody intentionally tried, it would still happen."
As you now know, anything that can occur intentionally, can also happen by accident. So yeah, it's still a problem. Just not nearly as much of a problem as it used to be.Edited by imagic - 4/13/13 at 7:50pm
