I made that comment coming from the perspective of a long distance hiker. If you're going to use the same bag every day for 3 months, regardless of whether it's down or synthetic, it pays to treat it well.
There's an author, somewhat of a distance hiking guru, Ray Jardine, who informs most of that community's thoughts. His suggestion for synthetic bags is to store them un-compressed in the top of your backpack (i.e. let them fill up whatever room is available). I think there are some practical issues with that idea, like if it is raining, but nonetheless that's his suggestion.
His other main point is to treat your bag gently. Don't jam it into a stuff sack so small that you're tearing at the fibres as you try to get it into and out of the sack.
For shorter trips, compression is less crucial as long as you don't go too small (a good rule of thumb is to only use stuff sacks as large or larger than the one provided with the bag). At the end of a trip, the loft of your bag might be somewhat compromised, but if you follow the suggestions for storage at home like we talked about in the other question, it ought to rebound to nearly full loft.
