What is a "Locked Thread", and Why?
Mar 27, 2014

I just noticed one of the threads I was following is "locked". What exactly is the point of that and what are the reasons? Seems to me like offensive comments could be handled by hitting the ignore button, but I'm sure there's some other reason for locking a thread.
