Unless you quote me I have no idea what you are referring to.

If you are referring to the silly pixel peeping term, then my response is it doesn't make sense, period.

Please explain why it doesn't make sense (I know you don't like to explain yourself, but I'll ask anyway).

We all know what a Pixel is.

To peep is to look at something.

Therefore if you are blowing up an image to the point the you can see individual pixels, you are peeping (looking at) pixels.

If you are peeping pixels, you are a pixel peeper.

Granted it's silly, but it is accurate. Some take offence to the term, some don't. Sounds like a personal issue if you do.

I'm an occasional pixel peeper, I don't see the problem here.

My thought is a good image is a good image even if you can't print it large. So the reason I pixel peep is to determine how large I can print. As I said if I'm not printing large, I don't care if it's not ideal at 100%. If I'm displaying digitally, I'm only concerned with the quality at the display size.
