Why did it get locked? The thread was pretty tame compared to some others that've reared their heads.

Well that's good to know! The mystery deepens. 8)

Though I haven't tried it I think anyone can lock a thread they started. Or used to be able to do that. One way would be to delete your OG post to get rid of the entire thing.

That is the best THX graphic yet.  Too funny!

When you start a thread you can lock it, and/or remove it using the functions located at the bottom left of the page.  You can unlock it the same way.  I accidently locked a thread I started by clicking on lock topic function instead of the go up function.  When I figured out my boo boo I unlocked it.
There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.

That may have been what happened, so perhaps it's my fault.

Maybe you should unlock it then so we can hear what loopy has.

We all know he hates a lock. ;D
