Hi Keith,

I apologize beforehand, since the following might sound very
condescending. Please don't take it as such.

All that experience you might have didn't help you to setup a site
that fulfills basic requirements that were laid out, didn't build a
site that is appealing to editors (again, I'm not talking about the
visual appearance).
I'm pretty sure it is because lack of time.

But even then, with so much experience, it should be easy to setup a
working site in an afternoon session. But that didn't happen. Neither
you nor any other of the drupal-cracks (as a positive term) didn't
setup a working demo.

All around the message is: "we need to get started /soon/".

Drupal is very good, its flexible, proven, and fast.  Yes. it takes a little
bit of time to configure

All valid, but irrelevant.

And sorry: You giving up so easily is another point that is
problematic. You'll always have to defend your point, and
unfortunately people come and leave. In the communities I have been
taking parts there were always people that promised "I will do this
and that in no time", and then when the slightest sign of a
problem/conflict showed up those people were the first to quit

So please: Don't give up that easily, and first of all: Don't take it
