The authors of the individual responses would own the copyright in their responses unless they agreed to transfer that copyright to the owner of the forum. Often, the owners of such forums will have posters agree to such a transfer, or at least to a non-exclusive license, by using a "click-wrap" or "click-through" license.
I hope that this helps!
