Default Green goo in coax

You're all aware of the green goo interaction between old PVC and copper..I saw it in coax for the first time today. I suspect that digital signals are more vulnerable to bad connections caused by this sort of thing, leading to blocking, dropouts, pixellation, nerve shattering digital screeches etc. Hopefully resolving this will solve the issues i've been trying to ignore for months- only permanent cure in this case though, is to rip out all the cable and replace. Oh Joy..
