I'm fully aware of limitations, and happy to take take help, but please 
understand I am skeptical to plans like "let's install PhpBB" and those 
are not fundamental plans.

The FPC community predates most forums on the internet and if I'm right 
the first messages date from 1999. It maintains full backward 
compatibility (even old URL's of the previous generation software) still 
work, scales well and is resonably hacker proof.

So work has to be either on improving the current system, or a 
proper thought out plan to replace it with another well working system 
that can last again for well over a decade.
