Dear Pals,
I have been looking for an open source (and free) online bulletin board system to use in a semi-commercial site. I liked Jive but its no more free! Now I am thinking about the followings -
  • eForum
  • MessageBoard
  • WWWboard Servlet
  • ForumServlet
  • MailBoard
  • mvnForum

  • Can you suggest me advantages/disadvantages of them?
