I am trying to find a good solution to support my wife's effort in creating a journal about a project on which we are starting; however, finding something simple that does not require any technical modifaction of files on a remotely hosted server due to limitations in both technical ability and desire; my wife does not want to have to mess with files about which she knows nothing.
I landed on serendipity and like what I saw; however, in trying to setup the page like she wanted it, I found:

Neither I nor my wife want comments, a bad experience with spam has completely turned us off from ever soliciting comments on a website again, we would rather wade through emails and post those comments from email ourselves as we see appropriate. I have always thought that a "blog" is a place to write one's own opinions, experiences or thoughts and is not a collaborative effort. Why not create an easy way to disable all comments globally?
We would love to implement this solution; however, given the fact that our first requirement (no comments globally) entails manipulating files in serendipity, we may continue to look for a better solution.
