Each thread that is locked will have an explanation as to why it is being locked, placed there by the staff member who locked it.
A thread may be locked for many reasons, but that is the key to knowing why.
If you don't agree with the reason(s) for why a thread has been locked, that is certainly your right, but with no disrespect intended, the chances of our changing the manner in which we currently deal with locked threads likely is not going to happen any time soon.
Why? Because we've been entrusted to run this forum based on the vision of its founder and owner, and until such time that we hear from him that he wants us to do it a different way, it's not going to change.
