My forum pages outranking my static content

I write articles around 400-1000 words long, all unique and well written, publish it on a static html page, validate.... and then start an associated forum thread to discuss the article with my forum members.

The shabby forum page consistently outranks the static content, even when there are no replies in the forum page, and even though the forum page has no description meta, is bloated with invalid code etc etc.

Well that's what you want isn't it?

So you write an article, and then point to another page on your site with the same title.

Google must think that if you're linking to the forum page, then it must be more valuable.

I make sure the titles are different. The pages link to eachother in the format: Discuss this article in out forum/This thread is about the following article.

I just firgured the page with the beef and valid, lightweight code would be better ranked. It doesn't make any sense to me.
