I'd like to add a +1 for punBB (or now apparently fluxBB). One of the
largest Dutch Linux forums (currently ~300,000 posts, 6,000 users) I
used to be a moderator for, previously used phpBB. There were a lot of
problems with vulnerabilities, posts that were disappearing, and
performance. I suggested to migrate that forum to punBB (since I had
good experiences with it), and since that migration all major problems
disappeared. Pun was a lot simpler, and offered less features, but
certainly worked better and faster.

Take care,
