I think shoutboxes are useless in forums because you don't need them. Use normal topics to communicate or chat systems like IRC if you want to interact in real time.

shoutboxes are good in some ways

 - Good for offtopic stuff
 - Good for tiny questions

and bad too

- destorys a lot of chatter
- takes away from simplicity
