python library for web discussions

Hi,

I'm building something like digg/reddit and would like to allow people
to have discussions on various items.

Is there a simple lightweight python library that I can use (as opposed
to a heavyweight web framework)? Although not necessary, some sort of
scoring/moderation mechanism would be good also (e.g., like
reddit/slashdot).

reddit is written with webpy (webpy.org), maybe you should give it a
try?

I'm looking for a library that provides commenting on items in a
similar way to reddit/digg/slashdot. I would rather not write all that
code from scratch.

I don't think web.py comes with that functionality, although of course,
some free package may provide it on top of web.py.

If you don't mind that it is not possible to discuss in "threads",
you may want to have a look at my blog server "Frog":

Ah, it doesn't support a scoring/moderation system too.
So it may not really suit your needs, but if you can't find
something else.... ;-)

Take a look at Karrigell (http://www.karrigell.com), it has a built-in
forum application
