    From all the free one I've seen and or configured, they all have some features but not everything you would need to run an efficient forum.

    Most of the really good forums ( even paid ones ), have been modified to function efficiently.

    Most decent hosting providers usually have several forum packages available for install, so if you really want to know which one works for your expectations, set a couple up, see how they work and see if they do what you want them to do.

    There are quite a few post on this forum so if you search you'll probably get some in depth details about specific names free forums.

    My experiences with about 15 different free forum hosts was that they either had too many ads, were slow, were unreliable/bad uptime, or had lousy features.
    web hosting is so cheap these days, just get some cheapo shared hosting that includes a free domain...

    If you're still looking, I used to use myBB (it's in my domain's installer) and I found it to be very good. It's easy to make themes for too.

    A few other goodies are XMB, SMF and phpBB
