Go back next time and quote me properly as I don't particularly like trying to figure out what you were responding to.

1) You said that a proper photographer seeks to excel both artistically and technically; moreover you claim that as fact. It is not, it is opinion - albeit one you appear to hold dearly.

No, it is fact. The craft of photography encompasses both.

2) What happens when you crop? Those pixels used to be part of the image, and thus according to you, equally important to the image...

If you have a camera, sensor and lens of high quality such a thing is much less of an issue otherwise, hence the emphasis one should place on technical excellence.

3) I think you have an issue with the expression 'pixel peeping' because you feel it is negative.

I have an issue with it because it makes no sense. It's a stupid term based on ignorance.

It is meant to be negative. To be used in the situations where 100% viewing is vastly overdone.

100% viewing can never be "overdone." It is the only way to judge the ultimate quality of a digital image.
