        print "No devices scanned."
    if problemsFound > 0:
        print "Found and cut out a total of %s property duplicates." % (str(problemsFound))
        if doItForReal == False:
            print "...but doItForReal was set to False so the changes are not commited"
        print "Congrats! You're clean! Nothing showed up during the scan for duplicated properties."

Execute the method. Pass doItForReal to 'True' for actions to be committed. Actions are not committed by default.
