This "columns" feature sounds to me like more blogging, with
registered users allowed to create blog posts. You would probably want
to then restrict the main blog listing to particular authors, and use
author archives to list each registered user's "columns".
However, why exactly do you want to use WP? I would probably build
this site in Drupal if I needed all those features, rather than
hacking together WP with a forum and poll and all that. Right tool for
the right job...
