Default Squashing a picture vertically on crt monitor?

I want to run my xbox 360 at 1280x720, but when I do this it will stretch the picture vertically. Is it damaging to the monitor to then squash the image on the OSD to a 16:9 ratio? I have already done it to test it and the image looks good, but right now I will not run it like this for the long term with out knowing if it is damaging the monitor.

Thanks, Trif.
