I remember seeing one of your posts like that. Don't remember if I was one of the ones making a comment, but once someone says they're making an artistic choice then that should be the end of it.

There is an very important point there.

Some people may be under contract, and simply have to deliver certain results: people sharp and recognisable, plenty of them to increase sales, a guarantee of a record of the results, etc.

But away from that, artistic choice is validly personal. (Many of the great artists of the past did things that were heavily criticised in their day, but often they are the ones who are remembered, not their critics!)

(For the record, it is OK to ruthlessly criticise any photos I post here. I'm pretty-well bullet proof! But many people are not).
