The NYT isn't exactly in a position to look down on About.com.

a site that spams search engines with stub articles and gets auto blocked by any decent spam filter is not meeting profit expectations................color me surprised.

from what I recall, profitability is dependent upon 60% of repeat business.

also in the 60% rule:
if you are considered smart, you will remember up to 80% of information
back in school, what is considered a D grade~60%, which is the baseline of norm; below that is failing.

The internet proved one therom of business, which is, to lower the transaction time between the cash in your pocket and mine. Considered profit.

so, to answer the question, a business can only sustain profitability over a long term with repeat business of at least 60% if they desire to remain in business.
