No, he was saying we shouldn't use another CMS for the main sites. 
Which, we're not, and and this particular discussion discusses something

Well, I think (from what I've read everyone saying) is that we'd all 
prefer to have TYPO3 run for everything we need. But in the real world 
it's not practical for some things. Which, yes, it's sad, but it's the 
reality of having only 24 hours in a day, being volunteer-based, and all 
that.   :S

And thank you for voicing your opinion, we'd be a pretty boring 
community if we all agreed, and the software would really suffer if 
people stopped saying "what if...?"

Well, all the links except for the ones self-contained within the forum 
itself all point back to main typo3.org pages, so I'm not sure what else 
could be done. I guess what my question would be is... what *can* be 
done with what we have available? Just make a landing page on the main 
site where people click to then get to the forum? Again, it's all a 
matter of doing what we can with the resources available to us.

Well, if you have any suggestions for getting from here to where you see 
it, how do we move forward from where we are at now?  :)
