The wysiwyg editor's buttons are set at admin by checking off a box.

The requirements you list are going to make a very boring website.
I'll fix this later

We grow beautiful ideas

I basically built the demo to show a couple features like groups, polls,

I don't know how many times I wrote it already: No matter what it
could do, at least it must meet the basic requirements first.

I hoped that someone else would put some content on the site at some
point.  AND NO I didn't set it up for editors,

But how should the people that will then actually use the page come up
with an opinion?
If you just tell "everything can be tweaked to death, to whatever you
like", but don't provide a basic setup that works, then you won't get
much positive votes.

I guess I could turn on the
WYSIWYG editor and let you make page menus.  I just didn't want to give the
testuser account the ability to change the top menus.

The WYSIWYG editor that is available now is not suitable. Again it
doesn't provide a way to create headings and the like.

And with the pages that were enabled now: Beware to never create a
page without assigning it to a menu, or otherwise you'll never be able
to dig it out again unless you bookmarked it.

We're talking about setting up a cms for website maintainence, not for
a site that hosts news bits or blogs or other bite-sized whatnot.
A structured website, similar to what is now.

I can't do that with Drupal.  But I did say WOW I'm glad I don't have to
work with this to build interactive websites.

You didn't see anything that made you say "wow" in the lists of
additions to silverstripe. But I don't see anything that does even
make me say "OK, that would work" with the drupal demo.

Again I stress that I don't doubt that one can build a site that fits
the needs, just the demo is nowhere near the initial requirements, not
even close I have to say.

Most of the sites that are coming online now are similar to social
networking sites where people can connect with each other and collaborate.

The LO site will not be a twitter or facebook like page. It should be
a place where endusers find information, at least as the primary
