It is my belief that the reason there are so many FrameWork-s is that there is exactly one framework for each really smart person with a unique problem. This means that if you build your site well and it's a unique site, which means your problems are different than someone else's, there's going to be one more framework out there and it's going to be yours. All these frameworks that are popping up are individuals solving their own unique problems. It's the blinded belief that a particular framework is a "save all" that is the real danger.
