LOL, never said otherwise. It was your conclusions and assumptions that
needed correcting, so people don't select a scaling algorithm for all
the wrong reasons.

Yes, so long as it is based on image quality and not on what yields
whatever file size. The latter can always be adjusted at the encoding
stage. Scaling and encoding are not related, you know.
