Wordpress for sure: http://codex.wordpress.org/Content_Visibility

I would strongly recommend the following tools: WordPress (for blog) + BuddyPress (social n/w) + bbPress (forum)

Have you checked out ComicCMS? Quite a new tool but looks promising. But as mentioned above, WordPress is worth investigating as there's a ComicPress theme, the ComicPress Manager plugin of which has a batch upload feature. There's also another WebComic plugin available.

Why not just use WordPress? You could write your posts "images" and then set them to go live on what ever day :)

www.squarespace.com - A web app that suites your needs. You can find a full list of features on their site. If you use coupon code diggnation you can get 10% off for the lifetime of your order. There is also a video of diggnation talking about squarespace.

The Settings Menu is the place you are looking for. Everything you described can be turned off using the settings. As for the menus and pages, you can create pages right off the bat, and menu's can be created via Appearance->Menu. As to their placement - see widgets. A little bit of fiddling around with the system should be quite self explanatory.

I would keep separate names, not for a technical reason, but to improve maintainability. 2 years from now, if there are 3 templates named "Full", it needlessly adds to the complexity of going back to update someone else's code. Edit: I accidentally a word.

I would keep the template names separate as well. I usually put all the component templates in one folder and page templates in another, and don't nest any deeper than that. Therefore keeping separate template names is necessary.

I would recommend Drupal (http://drupal.org) which is a very extendable CMS. It comes with user accounts, forums, and blogging (your basic requirements). To find out who else is on, use the 'Who's online' block. The calendar and event creation does not come directly out of the box but a module like GCal Events (http://drupal.org/project/gcal_events) can ...

Why not just use Wordpress? Although I am not sure about your requirement about pointing your own domain at it. You can self host fairly easily though.

I would recommend Joomla or even Drupal. From my experience Joomla is easier to configure but Drupal is more powerful but harder to learn. They both have tons of free plugins / addons that can do what you need. Both also have tons of free templates / themes to make your site look the way you want. Wordpress would be great if you just want to post status ...

This technique might help to keep the names short, which can help with usability when people are selecting these from a drop-down list. Real-life examples can often require longer names than the example you've given, so this can be a useful improvement. (Although I don't think you need a name as short as "Full".) Since modular templating was introduced, ...

MODx Revolution can do that — http://modxcms.com/ It's free and extensible, runs on PHP+SQL.

This really should be a comment, but haven't got the reputation yet. There's no way that you can have multiple domains running on the same host if the hosting company doesn't support adding extra domains to the host. The underlying webserver needs to know where the files from a domain is located. Depending on the host you can sometimes create subfolders ...

You can install two instances of a CMS in different subfolders, and then setup an addon domain with your hosting provider. That's how I host two blogs, two instances of wordpress on the same hosting account, but access them from two different top-level domains. In short it's commonly the hosting provider that provides such a feature, not the CMS.

Also, just grab non-blog themes. WP-remix is a well known commerical one that is pretty flexible.

Like Firefox User Voice?

I never worked with either of them really closely, but I think you should also give a try to Google Apps for Business and even better start with the free version. Among other great features that the company can be benefitted from, you can create the intranet using Google Sites.

Might want to give a shot at MediaWiki (notably if the documentation is supposed to be written collaboratively). Intel is using a wiki on their intranet. source About Google Apps: not sure if it really fits the definition of an intRAnet. I wouldn't be comfortable with leaving my company's internal data on some stranger's cloud. But it could indeed be ...

Drupal supports this out of the box, by creating the respective folders in your sites directory. More information can be found in the handbooks

I would definitely recommend Joomla as the best. You can jump start into Joomla in minutes of setup. I recommend you master the menu, modules to make your site the best. I recommend these template providers for the best of templates and modules, http://www.rockettheme.com http://www.yootheme.com http://www.gavick.com/ Modules from Gavick pro are ...

Since you mentioned the word "simple" and assuming daily comics are small (1 - 6 frames). I would strongly recommend you try to use www.debate365.com, the learning curve is very small and this is pretty suited for quickly putting together a short quote, joke or daily comic of a few frames. If you are interested in larger number of frames, the learning ...

I tried to check out ComicCMS and most of the links were broken. Have you tried mut8? It's free and looks like it supports everything you need—and it plugs into any site.

Blogger almost qualfies, too, apart from the last three points: •Has a simple form system when the submitted forms are just emailed to me. Combining with google Docs Forms gives simple forms, but you get emailed a link to a summary of the data in a Docs Spreadsheet, not the data itself. •Will check that all links are valid and inform me when a link become ...

Acquia just launched Drupal Gardens which is a hosted site for Drupal. There is a free plan and also larger paid plans (see Pricing). Here's the list of features.

CushyCMS This is an actual web application unlike Joomla, Textpattern, and Wordpress.org. It's not a hosted solution, but it features an online interface to modify text on your own server. As it says on its main page, it's designed to be a simple CMS for designers and publishers to use without too many unnecessary features. A few minutes of setup is ...
