It's not so much a matter of what size screens people have. The large pics just slow down the website and make it more cumbersome to navigate it if we allow everyone to post such huge pics all the time.

China is a developing country, Europe is developed. Europe didn't need to build whole cities from the ground up because they already had existing buildings to house it all. Big big difference. Practically all high rise development in western countries is demand due to population growth and business growth. In China, that's not the case.
