OLED displays do not have reverse polarity protection!

As if this weekend was not bad enough after I fried my Raspberry Pi, I managed to destroy a brand new OLED display. I mistakenly reversed to power leads and that was the end of that. In future I will double check all the connections, I just have to hope that the old saying of things come in threes is not true.
