Best Options for Small but Heavily Trafficked Online Forum

I'm part of a 25-member private message board. We've been using pHpBB for years, hosted on one of our members' private website, but her space is limited and we have periodic issues with the database crashing as a result. What are our options? [more inside]

Help ! Spammers have found my PHPBB forum !

I'm running a PhPBB forum. Spammers have found it. Mysterious strangers selling vigorous blue pills popped up from nowhere. Now I need to build something that will prevent spammers from polluting it. Is there a silver bullet that prevents all spammers from ever posting on PHPBB forums ? (I know, but I'm an eternal optimistic). Any antispam mods that has been successfullyt tested someone would like to recommend ? Thanks in adavance.

Resource problems on a web forum

I need pointers to Web forum packages (phpBB, SMF, vBulletin, etc) that go easy on CPU/mysql resources. I have shared hosting on Dreamhost and poor performance (2-3 minute pageloads, for example) are starting to become a serious issue. [more inside]

Lightweight, uncluttered forum systems?

phpBB, Invision, etc., are all great forum systems. The main drawback, for me, is that they all seem so bloated and cluttered. Statistics, rankings, avatars, signatures, etc., all seem to get in the way of actual content. Are there any good, robust, flexible, but more lightweight message board systems out there?
