Why are so many threads locked?

What is the point of open discussion if someone cannot comment on a thread very long before it is closed. Just curious!!

Re: Why are so many threads locked?

Threads are locked for several reasons.

Threads that are over 6 months old.
Threads that have veered off topic.
Very long threads.
When the original posters becomes obessed with a topic and posts the same or similar messages over and over again.
Or in this case when the posters question has been answered.

These are just a few of the reasons posts maybe locked.

Moderators and Admin. may lock, delete or move a post or thread as they feel necessary.

Re: Why are so many threads locked?

The best way to get attention to your own issues is to post your own New Thread.
Anyone still reading will see the post and will reply if one chooses.

Please never add your own issues onto someone else's thread.

Thanks.
