    vbulletin is the best. If you look hard enough you can find a nulled version & wont have to pay a penny for it.

    Free options would be PHPBB3 (I prefer this) or SMF, if your looking to pay, vBulletin, but you can always run a nulled version, remember running nulled scripts is like stealing cars, unless your being wreckless with them / they get reported as being stolen, you won't get caught, so don't boast about it being nulled, make sure theirs no "NULLED BY MAFIASCRIPTZ" and whatever all over the version and just keep it under-wraps. Don't worry, all they'll ask if for you to take the forum down or buy a lisense, it's only $200 and if your earning that kinda money by this time, it's fine to invest in the script, but I suggest vBulletin from day 1, don't change forum software and BACKUP OFTEN.

    No doubt vBulleting is the best script available.

    You can find a nulled version here.

    There used to be a plugin called ICO-Content. This plugin would scrape Yahoo Answers based on keywords for individual forum, it even created new users for each post/answer. The guy who was developing it was sickly, and suddenly disappeared, domain expired. He probably died. The plugin worked for versions up until 3.6. My suggestion is to search and try to find ICO-Content for vBulletin, install vBulletin 3.6 and use the plugin to create content and help stimulate real users. Its a very nifty plugin, although a bit buggy. Once you get your forum active, you can deactivate it (real members will eventually notice), and upgrade to the latest vBulletin version.

    I am using smf which is free, there are some nice themes for it, and it is quite easy to setup.

    SMF is really a good and free option, if you want to invest than you should buy vBulletin
