Can Treehouse Really Sell a Product with This Screen?

I was browsing the web for content management system software and its documentation tonight.  I came across a page for Treehouse. ... the fastest, easiest way to learn to code, make apps, and start a business. Tutorials in CSS, HTML ...

I paused to look a bit:

That's right, they think that using medium gray text on slightly darker medium gray background is a good idea in explaining their product.  Do they really think I will next take time to figure out how to buy it?  BTW, it looks better here in the screenshot than on their real page.

Maybe someone on their staff will shoot a link to this page to their management and say, "we might just be shooting ourselves in the foot here!"
