Okay, first of all:

What purpose would that serve? Whatever's happening isn't a result of the subforum's actions (ya know, since subforums aren't conscious beings), but of the members. What's the point of restarting it? If you feel like you need change, just suggest some new rules. There's no need to delete everything we have now. And even if does come to the extreme of wiping the entire general section, don't do it to the RPs. That would be inconvenient and nothing else.
Now, to state my own opinion on this matter:
My first post:

Pretty much my feelings at the time, and now too. I don't really care if this kind of topic is allowed on the UESP, since I (like everyone else) can just talk about these things elsewhere. I'm not even talking about Cactopia, you get opportunities to talk to people everywhere. We have Steam, Skype, chat and other nice things. If having these topics is so important to you, why don't you just organize debate sessions on an IM program, or Skype sessions especially dedicated to a topic you want to talk about? I'd take part, and I'm sure a lot of other people would too.
Then again, there's this thing that certain people seem to have, and that's the comfort-zone of operating on this board specifically. If that's the case, don't complain. You really have no justified reason to do so.
Peace out, don't do drugs and don't take candy from strangers.
