When Usability when?

I have to take issue with Joel's statement that,

I'll go out on a limb and say that there is not a single content-based website online that would gain even one dollar in revenue by improving usability, because content-based websites (by which I mean, websites that are not also applications) are already so damn usable.

This is quite simply wrong.
A recent case of a pure content site suffering terribly is the redesigned Allmusic. Even here on some changes in typeface, data displayed on the front sheet and letter size dramatically altered the use of this weblog.
