http://www.phpbb.com is the software that ALL the good boards use - they are open source (free)

You would still need the hosting company - http://www.ForwardWeb.com can install the phpbb.

One problem I have had with the PHBBB is its vulernability to hackers and script kiddies and spammers. There seem to be endless updates every month as a result.

In my case, the worst origins for these exploits was Brazil and Russia.

They are usually in the form of Pharmacy spams, but one was an outright hack.

I solved it by requiring an email application process by disallowing the username "*". This prevented uninvited guests or bots from signing up and dropping their spoor.
