Unless he means that the image should fill at least half the frame in which case he possibily didn't phrase it quite right.

That's exactly what he meant. You don't want to cut off more than 50% of the image you took because then quality will suffer.

Thanks Olga for the clarification.  I hadn't gotten back to this thread 'till now.

To the OP, pay close attention to EVERYTHING Olga posts.  In the years that I've been on DPReview she has always been dead on, no lie.  A true resource.

Are there any circumstances in which resizing gives better detail?

Cropping is not related to resizing. Cropping means you cut off part of an image. A "100% crop", at least when used in this forum, means a piece of your image without any magnification or resizing. Resizing means you alter the dimensions of the whole picture. It is usually used when it is not practical to show a full resolution picture.
