So we can compare apples-to-apples, I assume the page with 50k views is a page (or a post?)  Does it have any custom fields? If yes, how many?  Can you elaborate on what kind of data displayed on each page? (Care to share the URL? I'm asking not to make a point but because I'd like to understand WordPress scalability in real world scenarios.)
