Sounds like a case of somebody injecting their opinion into a Wikipedia article (CAN THAT HAPPEN? REALLY?) but it's still an interesting concept. The discussion on that forum seems to talk about whether studying can become a burden or not. Certainly this is something some teachers warn about.
But the Buddha said:
If he recites many teachings, but
— heedless man —
doesn't do what they say,
like a cowherd counting the cattle of
he has no share in the contemplative life.
If he recites next to nothing
but follows the Dhamma
in line with the Dhamma;
his mind well-released,
either here or hereafter:
he has his share in the contemplative life.http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html
