Why are so many threads here locked?

What is the point of locking a discussion simply because it's long, has been open for a while, or receives a new reply? All this does is discourage discussion, which is the point of forums. I notice this is a common excuse for locking discussions here, and it probably results in more repeated topics, rather than comprehensive ones.

It shouldn't matter when a thread was posted, how many comments it has, nor when a new person decides to comment. A thread can always be new or useful to someone. Open threads are a magnet drawing people in from current search results, closed ones are not as beneficial.

Those that are not interested in a specific thread can easily avoid it.

Anyway, just some feedback on something I noticed.
