I don't care for the regex/math/mod_rewrite sub-forums unless they're drawing a bunch of traffic themselves. These don't appear to. Just my $0.02.

So we'll get rid of Math as it never was that popular, and promote Regex since it is popular. We'll also merge mod_rewrite into Apache (with an edited description) since it was the only remaining sub-forum.

I've edited the first post to match.
