I've never been a fan of the templates
Templates are great, they allow you to do anything you want with the design. On the other hand, from what I've seen, people don't want to invest the time in modifying/creating templates, and just want a quicky 5 minute, change the colors type of 'template'.

, though the latest GMail ones were a great improvement. ... Nothing against programmers, but it's been my experience they aren't exactly the greatest artists and designers in the world. Looking at some of the template sets it *does* look like they've just been knocked up when the programmers had 5 minutes.
Which Gossamer Mail templates are you talking about? The original simple templates were created by a programmer. They might not have been too aesthetically pleasing, but they were designed for easy modification. About 98% of the HTML was good, valid HTML. On the other hand, the default templates were designed by a 'designer,' but IMHO weren't too aesthetically pleasing either. <shameless plug>That's why I myself went and revamped the simple template (which will be included in the next release)</shameless plug>. We also got another designer to create a new default template set. Either way, none of these template sets are 5 minute jobs. Creating a good template set, which can be easily customized takes a long time.

In a word the webhostingtalk board is just slick. GForum is a fair way behind, in my opinion. The "feature request" wasn't so much a point by point blow of what needs doing, more a point in the right direction as I see it, written as a "look how great this is".
To be fair, vBulletin's been around for quite a while now. They've had a lot of time to add those features (IMHO, some are somewhat useless). What would be more constructive, as others have mentioned, is making a list of features you think are useful. If there's enough interest in certain features, they will get added.
