I think best has everything to do with the choices we have. People creating forums want software that is:

Easy to install and upgrade
Flexible use with other integrations
Ability for use on small forums..to grow into huge ones
Efficient support

The top three softwares represent the push by the authors to add what is wanted by the customers for webhosted solutions.

Yes, their support has really improved since they closed the "free" help section. All my tech support tickets have been responded to very quickly.

vBulletin doesn't charge for basic support either. The only support fees are with priority and telephone support and are optional.

The $30.00 fee is not associated with support in anyway.

I never said that the $30 fee is associated with support.

But someone pointed out that it is like paying for support; year after year.
