Not because they're written in PHP, but because they have hundreds of buttons and silly little emoticons, no nested displaying of threads, only support for old-style moderation etc. I want to make the ultimate web forum software (in Perl). Here are a main list of features / design goals:

If you're interested by this, let me know (/msg me)--I'm looking for people to work with me on this project. I'm planning on releasing the code under an open source license but I'm not sure which one.

What is up with web DUHsigners implementing their own ridiculous scrolling controls? Non-standard GUI controls are a very bad idea, and Jakob Nielsen thinks so too. Non-standard scroll bars rarely offer all the functionality of a normal scroll bar, and perhaps most importantly, cannot be used with a wheel mouse! This is so annoying! Also annoying are sites that require you to manually select a language, for example easyJet. Have these designs never heard of the HTTP Accept-Language header?!
