Thanks for the feedback. It's very valuable to hear an outside  
perspective.  However I'm not 100% I understand what you are staying.

Are you saying that it is hard for you to  understand what plone does  
and how you can use it from initial reading of plone.org?  Do you  
consider yourself a web developer who wants to make many websites or  
someone who just wants one up and going really quickly?
