If you are talking about my post about projections and all, you need to know that it was written tongue in cheek ...mostly.
That being said, I would have to say that it all depends on how you want to map, and your preferred work flow. Some people do think of their world as a complete globe and want to find a projection that best fits the part of the globe that they want to show. Others, like me, approach a map as being part of a world but do not really care that there is distortion from a true global surface.
Where you want to stand all depends on how you approach mapping.
