Wear what you like and who cares what others think.
Who cares? HE cares. That's why he made the post.
I always matched my belt and shoes (and hat), having white an black shoes, but lately have been matching my belt to my shirt, too. Sites like bucklecity.com make just about any color belt you can imagine, and with snaps to accept most buckles. You can get a $7, 1.5" leather belt there, and throw a Travis Matthew or Adidas or Nike (or whatever brand you like) buckle on there and have a cheap "accessory" that you can change out to change things up some. You could wear the same shorts/shirt combo but throw in some different belt/hat combinations, and you can really change up your look without changing (or spending) much.
I'm usually not big on having the belt blend in with the shorts (unless they're both black, and match black shoes), but there's nothing wrong with it.
For me, it's about having some balance. I think a shirt or hat or belt should go with something else. I don't think it's a good look when someone wears something like khaki pants, a blue shirt, and red hat. Do those colors all go together? Sure, they do. But when nothing is picking up anything else (when there's no other khaki, red, or blue article), I don't think it looks good. If you wear something that picks up another article of the same color, it looks like you put SOME thought into it, which is what you're trying to accomplish, I think.
