Most of the threads I have seen locked were for one of two reasons:

1 - Other active threads were already covering the topic, IE the new poster had not bothered to check before duplicating a thread; or

2 - Threads were driveby, IE the new poster did not bother to read forum rules about what is required of the original post in a new thread.

Not as frequently:

3 - Thread was started in the wrong forum, for instance The Revolver forum, when these are topics for General Discussion, or Law and Civil Rights; or

4 - Thread violated TFL copyright policy by cutting and pasting entire articles, rather than posting a link or attribution, and quick summary.

Most of these problems would not exist if new guys (and some older members) would just read the rules.
