I must admit i skipped large chunks of the discussion after a while scrolling down; but i think i got most of it.
Tell me if you, from both sides, think this would be an acceptable compromise:
The politics and other subforums dealing with more controversial topics not directly related to Bitcoin are kept as part of the forum, but mostly just serverside, when users try to access those sections they are directed to another domain, with a disclaimer stating somthing along the lines of "even though the moderators and participants might be the same these sections are not part of the official Bitcoin forum".
And of course, in both the original forum and in the non-official sections there would be some disclaimer like on chatrooms, games with user created content, chat etc and other things like that, somthing along the lines of "The ideas expressed by users in here does not necessarily reflect The Bitcoin Foundation's position - viewer discretion advised" (i can't remember the exact wording i was going got, but is somthing kinda like that)
WTF is "The Bitcoin Foundation"? Last thing I want is some board deciding what is or is not necesarrily the official position of bitcoin.
Please folks, start your own forums.
