  "Since I had some experience with drupal, I suggested that we go
  with drupal, since I had some experience with its working."

  I am bemused by this guy's thinking process. If he had some experience
with Drupal, then why not go for it the first thing ?
Why all this experiment with Plone and some good amount of bashing
at the end ?

 I typically stay away from Web framework stuff since it is not my
cup of tea, but it is quite strange to see this kind of Plone bashing
from a site which is hosting a Python related conference!

He should just change the "Why Drupal" content to "Because I
only know Drupal and I don't feel apologetic to run a non-python
framework for this site". The current content feels thoroughly
apologetic and quite flame inducing.
