Default aspect ratio: who else crops to a different ratio??

Just stumbled across Robin Wongs post:

I thought that thsoe pictures all looked like none were actually in 4/3 format but cropped to 1600:1068=1.5 - or 2:3 like the old 36:24 or 2:3 aspect ratio of what is called FF or APS-C.

When I used my MFT cameras I also cropped all images to 2:3 I just couldn't shake off the 2:3 from a few decades of shooting.

I wonder whether this is more wide-spread that one would think as you give up some pixels on the way?? It never bothered me too much as I thought that I still had plenty of pixels for a decent print up to a vertical 12".

Anybody else cropping in2:3? Robin Wong not exactly one of those shooters I would have associated 2:3 with ... or was this a one-off maybe?
