Sorry OnlyToday, but I beg to differ and I'm afraid we'll have to agree to disagree. The very first post is indicative of what a thread is about, and martinibuster's only comment in the post starting this thread, aside from [woof!] was this:
The owners of the site in question in this thread drank deeply and delightedly on the tantilizingly delicious taste of long tail page-stuffing and reveled in their $115K a month profit, binging on cash while throwing all caution to the wind. What they neglected to do was to drink any Google Kool-aid.
Calacanis, on the other hand, apparently drank enough of the Google Kool-aid to know enough to part with a few pesos and actually create some CONTENT.
Those guys could have taken a bit of their $115K a month and hired on a consultant (even a $50 an hour newbie could have steered them on course) and staff or contract writers; instead, they were penny wise and ended up being pound foolish for the long term.
So they got bitten in the backside by greed, and now they're yelling ouch.
