Haha me too! Every now and then I think "Is that flashlighting? Damn AVSFORUM!"
Usually black backgrounds appear to show panel faults when I watch SD content, so I am chalking it up to source. Even if it isn't, I am trying to delude myself. However, just typing this thought out indicates I have failed so far. ARGH!
