"This way Grok is a step forward to popular Python web frameworks like 
TurboGears, Pylons and Django"

That's the kind of wording that I regularly zap as plone.net reviewer. 
"We're the leading provider of plone in country XYZ" makes plone.net 
(the neutral resource) say that you're better than the other companies.

Likewise, the wikipedia entry makes wikipedia say that grok is better 
than pylons and django. So I can imagine somebody regarding it as partial.

You can list real differences, but you cannot make value statements 
without providing lots of supporting data :-)
