This discussion should not become an endurance challenge, where whoever holds out the longest wins.
That's no way to make a good technical decision.

Ok. You win, go with Silverstripe, it appears that you already have
made that decision and I don't have the time to devote to this
discussion, since I will not be working with Silverstripe. I really
did look into Silverstripe and the reason you find it clear is that it
doesn't do much and I didn't find it very flexible.
I think this is important to note. Silverstripe looks good with no effort, and when has been the

Perhaps we should set a higher bar for the demo. Keith, can you look at the requirements wiki page
and add details about ad hoc group creation and other features you suggest the site should have to

The views query builder and the content construction kit for drupal
are absolutely amazing. You need a real site builder demo to
understand that. They are far and away one of the most impressive
things I've ever used in an online system, dare I say they are
revolutionary in some ways. Maybe there is something like them but I
haven't seen it.
Why don't you just go use wordpress? I don't think that Silverstripe
adds more and at least with WP you don't need to look at that crappy
loading screen on admin side whenever you click a button.
Interesting, someone recommended WordPress early in this discussion but never followed up.
