Postforum was started in 1996 and was, for a time, the biggest independent forum for Mac-based video professionals. Sadly, that time has passed, and I no longer have time to maintain this site, which is continually overrun by spammers. As such, all forums are in Moderation mode, and will no longer be moderated. Whatever you post is going into a black hole.
I'm leaving the site up for posterity, and will prune spam as i can. It was fun while it lasted! -perry

postforum is far more thoughtfully designed than the others you mention. years of experience and user feedback went into making this site what it is now, and it does sustain itself through the postforum pro program as well as advertising to non-pro members.
as far as cost, those other message boards will cost far more than $200/year to run, and i can guarantee that a board with as much traffic as postforum would cost significantly more. As of right now, the site has about a gigabyte of traffic per day. with the current server, there's plenty of room to grow that.
as for why you should stay here - that's up to you. if you prefer other boards, by all means use them. there are plenty out there. Postforum is one of the oldest continually running message boards of its kind, and has a wealth of information in the archive, as well as a dedicated userbase of both pro and non-pro members.
