Ok, I'm afraid that I will need some time to work through that old thread; and I'm very busy this week.
Still, I started reading it and I notice some disagreement about what Bell claimed to prove. There is no use getting into arguments about the meaning of "local realism" and philosophy. What the "local realist" Einstein insisted on, and what Bell claimed to be incompatible with QM, was "no spooky action at a distance". Or, as Bell put it in his first paper:
Those who deviate from that issue are shooting at straw men.
Bell puts it this way in his Bertlmann's socks paper:
The focus of this discussion is Bell's attempt to prove that Einstein's "no action at a distance" principle is incompatible with QM, in the light of Jayne's first criticism.
