Pligg is unlike any other CMS because it was designed from the ground up to function as a large social network site where users can submit news and vote on it. No other open source CMS out there can compete with it because it is so far ahead of everyone else. There are a lot of great uses for this php/mysql script, and since it's open source you can freely modify it to do whatever you want. Lots of big companies are even using it. MTV Networks, Disney, Bank of America and Intel to name a few.
The only poor review listed here is from PerryM. He was banned from the Pligg forums because he refused to comprehend the fact that Pligg is free. It is obvious he is a troll from a competing CMS and is only giving Pligg a poor review to bolster his own failed attempt at creating a vibrant social CMS such as Pligg. The guy couldn't even find the download link at the top of the site where he would have been able to find all the things he complains about.
I reviewed as much as I could before the Pligg owner(s) blocked my IP address - seems I questioned their "Free" program. What's "Free" is a skeleton CMS which is worthless. To add the Forums, Blogs, Chat Rooms, etc costs money and I brought up that fact. It is a commercial site posing as a free site. The little I saw was interesting, and handles mundane tasks in a "unique" quirky manner. I'll pass until they make it a 30 day free trial to actually see things work.
