I get it, but an upscaling algorithm is a filter (the direct resize you posted is too). The important part was the first sentence, the second one was just there for clarification of what upscaling is I think, because she's fine with people using them in MV but doesn't want the size changed to do it. I think if someone were to by hand upscale it to be clean pixels she'd be okay with it (Don't do this and quote me as giving permission, it's a guess and you need permission from her first!), but I know that she can't stand the fuzzy look of the waifu resize and everyone agrees that the direct resize is terrible. Either way if you don't know for certain it's always best to assume no until it's been proven otherwise. Avery's been gone a lot lately, because she was sick and/or super busy, I'm not surprised she didn't reply yet. A little clarification wouldn't hurt though. BTW, you should give her a little slack if her wording isn't exact or what you expect, English is not her first language.
