Copying something like this would be pretty easy

I'm a software engineer (and a lurker), and in fact, I copied the major functionality of this site (posting/saving threads, replying to messages...uh...what else is there?) from scratch in the past three-four hours out of curiosity. It's ugly (even uglier than Boardhost), because I don't usually do web development, and the way it is now is crazy insecure, and also probably pretty slow, but it already works, so depending on how many features are really deemed "necessary" it wouldn't be very hard to get a semi-polished homebrewed site like this, probably.
