That's really really bad advice.

Even with low latency, your talking on the order of a millisecond for
a round trip to the server.

Data can be loaded from client cache on a 10-20 microseconds if the
data is in the client
disk cache.

If the database is large or if the server is heavily loaded, then
server load times can be'
much worse.  Of course, leaning toward small cache and lots of server
loads makes the server even more heavily loaded.
