Marco's post is doing publishers a favor. Focusing on revenue and not on your customers is how to die.

If you focus on your customers and your customers don't pay anything you still die.

That's not true. If you're a publisher, and you focus on your readers (for content value) and your advertisers (for ad value), then you win. The point of this post is that paging hurts both kinds of customers.
