Uh, "insert software of your choice"?? Are you saying *any* software is
a CMS? We are all Elvis, and Elvis is in all of us? Interesting worldview.
But I'm sure the doctor knows what she's prescribing. Anyway.

The Wordpress web site, under 'Features', mentions nothing but blogging.
OTOH, Drupal's site /refers/ to it as a CMS, but I've never used it, so can't
comment on that claim.

So looking for precision in the use of language is "snobbish"? No
worries. BTW, would you mind going out in the yard and feeding the
chihuahua, or bear, or whatever it is? Thanks.

Sorry, not my job.  :-)
