What about a simple RSS server?

I've spent the last week poking around looking for a very simple RSS server (have you ever tried searching for something like that with Google etc.? :-))
By that I mean a CGI script or similar that lets people write up a short simple article or announcement and submit it to an RSS server, that would then publish it via RSS. I've looked at blogging engines, most of which publish RSS, and those are kind of what I mean but they're so heavy-weight; I don't need comments, calendars, etc. Plus I'd like to be able to timeout stuff and delete it. Also, I don't want people to have to learn HTML etc. to write content: I would like some pretty simple markup to do simple things: in that sense it's like a Wiki, but I don't want people to be able to modify the content, etc. (and most wikis are also more than I imagine I need).
Anyone have any pointers to something very small and simple? It doesn't have to be "production ready" or anything.
