Many people will refuse to acknowledge it's validity because it goes against some misconceptions that some people incorrectly believe are truths.

The article is lengthy, written by a Physicist and is backed up by mathematical proofs. One of his statements from the article:

" Resolution doesn’t increase noise

Increasing resolution (MPixels) for a given sensor size has no direct impact on image noise. In fact, some of the lowest noise cameras (Nikon D800, Nikon D3x, Pentax K-5, Nikon D7000, Sony Alpha 580) have relatively high resolutions. See Figure 1a."

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
