Want to understand the implications of locking of threadI am a serial offender. Many of my Forum posts get deleted. Some Forum posts are locked with reduced points credit. And some other Forum posts are locked. In case of locked threads, no further discussion is possible.
I want to know whether we (the Members of ISC) should take locked thread as a type of punishment or disciplinary measure imposed upon the erring Member. A thread is deleted if it is of poor quality or has copied content. But why does the Editor lock a thread? What are the grounds for locking threads? Why should a locked thread be considered a punishment? Does such thread anyway hamper the earning/possibility of earning by the erring Member.
This is a genuine curiosity. This question is not raised to create dispute. Editors and senior Members may kindly clarify my doubts.
