I so want to get involved

This thread over at AskMeFi (Plone vs. Drupal) is surprising in its vociferous hatred of Plone.  Part of me really wants to get involved; wade in on behalf of Plone and explain exactly why Drupal is a labyrinthine mess…  But…  I can’t.  The last week I’ve been struggling to get to grips with Plone 3.x.  It’s been really tough.  Today is not the day to defend something that’s been pissing me off constantly for the last week.

Right now I’d be happy for any alternative on the Python CMS front (Exotypes, anyone?).  If this is the way Plone is going I’m not sure I want to follow any more.
