Vanilla for discussion doesn't sound bad. Here are my concerns, though (I don't know much about the Vanilla core, do excuse me if anything sounds too trivial): o Does Vanilla generate static HTML files? If not, it could be a problem. o From what I see, it doesn't have a threaded comment system. Bad. o Lacks RSS/Atom feeds (correct me if I'm wrong) Moreover, I don't know how the weblog format would suit a discussion which would eventually have many users. Any examples of relatively large projects using this format?

Maybe its REBOL Talk, maybe not. I don't know. This is a community.
