Forums were originally used in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire as a place where the public gathered and discussed the latest news, politics or philosophy. When the World Wide Web gathered popularity and Internet access became something normal and not a luxury, forums saw a second coming. Online forums, or discussion boards, are widely popular, since they allow everybody, connected to the web to share their opinion on a certain topic. And while in the beginning forums were difficult to maintain, with the introduction of databases, such as MySQL and PostgreSQL, and scripting languages, such as PHP and Perl, forums became very easy to create, maintain and manage.
