    I would recommend MyBB mainly because of its support forum at MyBB - Free PHP and MySQL Forum Software also they have some of the best templates, mods and its free !!

    Long ago i had a forum website.

    i first used SMF in it and then changed to PHPbb.
    PHPBB was comfortable for me than SMF....

    But vBulletin is the best of the bests...

    I tried PHPBB and got spammed to death, also it is a mammoth script, way too complex IMO. SMF I like but is dated and hard to customize.

    MyBB is great IMO. The #1 choice for me and I do my best to recommend it to anyone who asks. I can code plugins for it too.

    I tried phpBB find it difficult to use (may be not being expert), after switching over to VB I feel very relax, easy to operate and can find lots of support on net.

    I am using MyBB at the moment and it is the best free script, however VB is the most advanced... if you are willing to pay for it

    Yes it is very simple for who does not know much about codes etc., I can say it is really worth.

    MyBB gets my vote at webmasterjuice.com No spam yet while PHPBB was a nightmare and SMF is OK but a bit tricky to customize in my experience.
