Wouldn't it be nice to click 'This thread is currently locked' and find a short explanation why.
Especially if you've gone to the effort of contributing to the locked thread in question.
Just a thought
#ff0000;">Comment: If it's not obvious or if the thread hasn't been moved into a Read Only section we often state why.
Unlike on some other sites, we seldom Delete threads and we don't let Topic Starters do so - we Lock instead.
Update : Incidentally there is an explanation in the Locked thread you contributed to - it was added last night.
