Yes, it is pixel peeping, but pixel peeping is not the problem

Yes, I would. But I have nothing against pixel peeping in itself.

What I have something against are the wrong conclusions about noise and sharpness that people draw when they use 100% pixel magnification to compare two cameras with a different number of megapixels.

So please continue what you are doing. But remember that if you have photos from a 6MP camera and a 24 MP camera, and you deem the 6MP photos better because they look better at 100% pixel magnification, you are doing it wrong. You should instead look at the 6MP files at 200% and the 24MP files at 100% to get a correct comparison.
