The simple reason is that lua-users and are both hosted on a web
host (Pepperfish) which refuses to host PHP sites due to the inherent
danger and hideous security issues presented by attempting to maintain a
PHP installation.

If a good forums program were found which was implemented in python,
ruby, perl, or perhaps more appropriately, Lua, then I'm sure we could
get it going.
