Exactly, it saves a lot of time when you want a cookie-cutter site using lots of 3rd party apps. Not knocking that - there are lots of cases where that's exactly what you need. But this is what reminds me more of a CMS like Drupal than a framework - blocks of content managed by a single admin and authentication system.

When I want to do something more original and specific where I don't need all those apps, Django just gets in the way - and that's when I turn to a more lightweight and flexible framework.

Use the best tool for the job. Sometimes Django is that tool. The problem I have is with companies and individuals who think it's the only tool.
