Hope this is not the wrong kind of post here, and I really just want to make a simple observation: If there are such heated debates about "the big three" (phpbb, vb, ipb), and it seems that defenders on all three sides have their strong points, would it be fair to say that they are at least very close to one another in overall quality? I.e., if you go with one over the other, it's for some small thing. So is it really a Chevy vs. Ford kind of thing? I.e., they are all of about the same quality, but some small, say styling, details make the difference? I *have* noticed that it usually comes down to vB vs. IPB, and PHPBB is often left out.
