Why do so many people not understand lossless compression?

Huh?

Use lossless compressed, at least.

You do have a solid and verifiable reason for making these statements? Yes?

About as solid as it gets: I've developed compression/decompression code for use in flight control computers. Lossless means precisely that: There is no difference between the original uncompressed data, and the data that comes back from the decompression process. If there was any difference - even a single bit - Boeing 777 airplanes wouldn't be flying.
