No everyone needs a full featured bulletin board such as phpBB. freeForum is a GPL, free, and simple discussion board script which can be fully integrated with your existing page layout. It concentrates on the main features of typical forum scrips, and does it well. Above all, you'll need less than 3 minutes to get it working!
