Everyone can shoot in different ways and it's no less valid-we should focus on result more than process.
(And this is coming from a guy who loves 6x6 and usually prefers a square, and a full-frame at that...I just don't think it has to be this way all the time for me, or for other people.)
Edit: To the point of the thread, I'm firmly with the "square printing gives me a test strip with every sheet of paper" crowd...
