Well, I'm using Blogger, which is owned by Google, which may or may not
could as a "good" company, depending on your views.
As for not treating members as children...
I'm using Textile, which is one of those "smart" text-to-HTML markup
deals. I type out a post in vim under mutt, hit a keybinding to pipe the
mail through Redcloth (A Ruby Textile implementation), and then mail the
message to a magic address with automatically posts it.
Now, it turns out that the email gateway eats newlines, whichs marks
marking something up with <pre> pretty useless. I've emailed them about
this. We'll see if they blow me off. Stay tuned...

Wordpress is a PHP CMS/blogging framework. You can install it yourself
if you've got webspace with PHP+MySQL. I believe that some services use
Wordpress, or at least the option to use Wordpress, so you could get it
a service if you really wanted it.
