But when your pixels are smaller, the same amount of blur covers more pixels, making the diffraction more visible. If your pixels are large enough, you might not see the diffraction that you see when pixels are smaller.

Sure - more pixels mean that you see whatever is in the image plane more accurately - diffraction, CA, dust, and detail too. The difference seems to be that people seem to think (mistakenly) that there's some kind of special relationship between pixels and diffraction.
