Precisely. That's the most compelling feature of Drupal - you can change EVERYTHING without hacking core code. Want extra fields on the login box? Alter the form via a module! Want to add advertisements after the first paragraph of each story? Write a content filter, or modify the node output before it's displayed. I've yet to find something I couldn't do via the API.
That's why the author's complaint of no advertising built-in is absurd. You can have ads up and running in five minutes with a contributed module.
