Personally, I think vBulletin is awful. For me, its a close tie between SMF and phpBB though I haven't used phpBB 3 so it might have taken first place by now.

I highly recommend using PHPBB3 at phpBB • Creating Communities Worldwide. Its really easy to use and its free. Also since there are hundreds of developers, their security issues are generally closed within a couple of days.

The problem I have with phpbb is the administration interface is very hard to navigate and permissions are really tricky. Thats why I normally use the database to work out permissions in PHPBB. I wish it was more simple than having 4 or 5 different places to edit permissions :P

Forum permissions are a pain in the arse. I have yet to find a forum that implements a decent strategy. I mean, there are forum permissions, group permissions, user permissions, and it just becomes a big headache.

I've seen PHPBB2, Proboards, Invsion Boards, and SMF on top of PHPBB3. I guess out of them all, phpbb2 has the easiest interface because I took the time to learn it thoroughly. I really wish that PHPBB3 would have kept the same system, because anymore, I find it easier to edit permissions directly in the database rather than on the admin panel, and thats sad lol. The DB is supposed to be harder, isn't it? :P

I suppose the DB should be more difficult, but I too prefer to edit settings directly though the database.
