I do believe that your opinions are just that: opinions. every person
who writes code thinks the way they write it is "great" and the way other
write theirs is "Crap". Why not write your own cms if you think working
with a cms is crap? If they're so bad, don't use them. Most CMS's are
tailored to whomever the distributor's audience is. Just because you don't
want to write your own extensions, and/or do the work in coding the whole
site yourself, doesn't mean that you should just bash someone else work.
Where is the "Daniel Givens CMS"? Oh wait, it hasn't been released because
it doesn't exist. Before bashing on someones hard work, write one
yourself, and see how much better yours is. Thanks!
