My issues with the use of forums for wide-ranging discussion are (so far as I know) the sort that can't be fixed. But, I do use (and help run) forums for other purposes, and if other people's problems with the Moon Design ones are, in part, that they look ugly - as some have said - I have some friends with experience in prettifying forums.
