Regarding the posts you referenced:
Re: Franken thread
I'm assuming you're referring to the second part where deletion of Obama/media posts is threatened...those are probably off-topic in a Franken election thread.
Re: Gay Marriage thread
I back up what was said. If you read the entire thread, the user he was quoting was continuously using fallacious arguments. Some of the post is borderline, but nothing I would bother acting on.
