are you saying that's all you get back? OR are you saying you don't want the header? If you don't want the header, try:
$ch = curl_init();
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "http://forum.doom9.org/login.php");
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_NOBODY, 0);
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, $user_agent);
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, dirname(__FILE__) . "/cookies.txt");
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, dirname(__FILE__) . "/cookies.txt");
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "username=user&password=sedr&action=login");
         curl_exec($ch);
 
	// use this to pull up the thread you want to grab content from
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "http://forum.doom9.org/");
         $result = curl_exec($ch);
	    $header_size = curl_getinfo($ch,CURLINFO_HEADER_SIZE);
		 echo substr( $result, $header_size );
