Is there any way of moving discussion forums from one Area to another

Is there any way of moving discussion forums from one area to another?
I know you can either use a web service to move the data or save the
list as a template and then create it in the other area, but both of
these ways do not preserve the posting time, modification time, or
original author.

We are using 3rd party tool called ViewPoint from Metalogix. ViewPoint preserves the metadata such as posted by, create  by,Posted At etc. You can copy and paste the lists, document library, discussion  boards. from portal areas to wss site or vice versa or any combination.

Another way is by updating the table within the SharePoint db (not recommended by Microsoft).

Did you try using CAML?
