Avoid forum like reboot product "Discourse"

This is a tangent for this site, but since it is related to community forum, in case anyone was considering using's forum-like product Discourse, I recommend avoiding using the product. has a forum-like reincarnation product called Discourse. Unfortunately it is extremely unstable, has a long chain of dependencies that make it very fragile, the founders and the community are lacking in support abilities, the documentation is very lacking.

Maybe after they have had a few years to mature the product, maybe in 3 to 5 years, it will be worth reevaluating. More details for those wanting more technical in depth information:
