    phpBB if you don't mind getting your hands dirty with code, lots of code edits for applying mods. Unless they have simplified it recently of course.
    phpBB is a fully functional, complicated but great free forum, you just have to keep on top of the spambots and apply good enough prevention.

    SMF for simplicity although plugins can be a pain because when the core is upgraded it takes ages for the plugins to be upgraded so they work on the new software.
