What is it that causes a topic to be "locked" once it's relegated to the Slag Heap? I noticed that only three other "lousy threads" aside from my hijacked "Hawk Shooting" were locked. In the explanation it says: "You can reply to things, but not start new threads here" How can a poster reply when the topic is locked? The other threads that were locked were on weight loss or seasonal. I don't see any precident that was followed. Mr Administrator, an explanation, please?
