Community ASP Software?

I'm looking for a community/portal service that isn't rediculously expensive. Anyone know of such a thing?

I feel like I have a list of "requirements" that are leaving me without a solution.

I need basic community things like content/file management, forums, user management, but I want it in the form of an ASP, so I don't have to download and install it, so ASPDotNuke, Drupal, etc are out.

Talisma is pretty close to what I'm looking for, but it's crazy-expensive, and overkill in so many ways. Anything that's really a CRM system isn't going to be the right thing anyway.

Basically, what I'm looking for is the lovechild of Talisma and 37Signals. Simple, easy-to-use, ASP software for community functions; at a reasonable price.

Has anyone seen anything like this out there?

Outsource it. This will allow you to get away from the limitations of ASP. Try a good big web hoster like DreamHost or WebHost: their control panel software has several packages similar to what you describe, which can be installed at the click of a button.

Bryght in Vancouver sells Drupal as an ASP service.
