Of course, this approach - as well as that of Bob, Big Bird, etc. - is completely valid. It is time that we embrace both. Many images are used only electronically and never printed, and heavy cropping is not uncommon.

That's exactly what I have been saying here for years: both approaches are valid. A lot of confusion arises of course, when people post and it is not clear about which approach they are talking.

Sadly, when I said this Bob (or sometimes the GB, ejmartin, John Sheehy) called my ideas "ludicrous" or "nonsense"...

We're not so diplomatic as Marianne ;).

Whether it is 'ludicrous' or 'nonsense' depends on what you are saying. 100% examination of an image can be revealing, 100% comparisons of images with different pixel counts generally leads to ludicrous, nonsense and sometimes ridiculous conclusions. It is the conclusion that is being called, not the 100% viewing.
It's very hard to think which real use case a 100% comparison represents.
