I gave up a long time ago trying to explain to people why watching 4:3 video in stretch mode was just plain retarded. The sort of person who wants this doesn't want it for technical reasons, and can't be talked out of it with technical reasoning. People can't get past the feeling that something is wrong, because black bars on a 4:3 CRT of the past meant that something was drastically wrong, and they don't understand why some videos don't use all of their big screen that they just paid for.
That's my theory anyway.
