The fatal flaw in your argument is that anybody can see technical flaws. It takes no skill or experience to do so.

Can they? From the way that those who are strongly arguing in favor of the art, or aesthetics, side of photography, you would think such things are not easily see so as to matter.

Because of that I can assume that if they cared about technical flaws they would already have looked for them, seen them and anybody who is pointing them out would only be redundant.

Your assumption is flawed because it is based on the greater focus that  you place on the artistic, or aesthetic.

Aesthetic aspects on the other hand are not so obvious and the way people respond is variable and unpredictable. So, unless someone asks for a critique on how good the photo is technically I stick to the aesthetic opinions.

Art, aesthetics, are ultimately subjective so of course they are not so obvious.

Tom, please quote what you are responding. It saves me time in trying to figure out exactly what you are responding to.  I'm not getting any younger; I need that help.

Look at the picture, not the pixels
Misuse of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
