Can someone please explain to me why older threads get locked?? There are several reasons I ask this. Locking a thread has no effect other than prohibiting people from posting it, and If someone asks then a thread gets unlocked. Im not talking about controversial threads, but mundane threads. Just because a thread is outdated is no reason to prohibit people from using it. If its that old, I can see a reason for removing it (For space and bandwidth) but locking and unlocking it just seems silly to me.
