You take for granted forums that not only are well laid out, but have advanced features to easily post. And the prevalence would make it seem all sites with a forum should be on the ball.
So it kind of bothers when forums are crippled by not having edit keys, search buttons or any of the other standards usually in place. And it is especially terrible where there is no real forum and just one long listings of posts.
Having just spent some time on the myspacfe forums, I felt the need to vent some.

gamefaqs is the 3rd world country of forums (not only are the people uneducated, but there's no functionality)

The myspace forums are terrible. So are the chat room. Everything is half-assed on that website.

Agreed... why have they never taken the time to upgrade their forums?

No edit button, a shitty search... I thought GameFAQ's was what the OP was leading up to. GameFAQ's has decent forums on the lesser known game sub-forum's, just stay away from the main forums.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the blizzard forums. Absolute crap! They've been using the same forum style since the late 90's. You'd think that they would upgrade their forum servers/software considering how much money they pull in with their excellent games.

"I remember when we had to wait fifteen minutes to post a message."

Seriousely though, OP, I agree. We've got some great forums.
