[Wolves] Screensavers

Hey, guys, does one REALLY need a screensaver if one owns a TFT screen?   

I think the screensavers are primarily for CRT users so that the
phosphor coatings inside their CRT monitors would lessen the wear/tear
(phosphor burn) thus making CRT monitors last a bit longer. 
[Hole-in-wall cash dispensers now have some kind of 'screensaver' by
flashing adverts about their banking products.]

....but TFT does not contain phosphors, only LCD, so would they also
suffer the same problem?  I think not.

Anyone know better than me?
