"Message Forum" is what ClassCreator was first started with, then it was revised to be "User Forums" and "Message Forums" was to go away, but it was decided that some people understood the "Message Forum" concept better, so it was kept around.

You can disable either of them if you want from your Edit Site Pages link.
