But if it's not a bear what is it? Well, ok the chihuahua is a Dog :)
But what are Wordpress, Drupal, [insert software of your choice here] if not 
CMS? I totally understand where your snobbish view of CMS comes from, but 
it's not very useful unless you can come up with an alternative nomenclature.

What should people be using instead of 'CMS'?
