Hi Eric,

There's a forum capability in Interchange, and there's a draft
documentation available at:

Maybe that functionality would suit your needs.

Of free software bulletins, there are YaBB in Perl, and phpBB which is
YaBB clone in php. Both are written by 15-yr old kids, the code is crap
and althogether they're not worth a second thought.

Commercially, there's vBulletin available which seems to be used by
many sites (www.di.fm comes to mind first).

There's also one excellent free software forum, mwforum.org .
Code is decent, even works under mod_perl and the overall impression
is great.
