What is the difference between deletion and locking of a thread.We have been posting some threads on the forum section on different topics. Some of the threads will be deleted by the Editors and some will be closed within no time. It may be a day or even less than a day it will be locked. What is the difference between these two actions?
Yesterday I have posted a thread wishing all on the occasion of Yoga day. The thread was deleted saying that already one thread is on. I have not seen that thread before posting my thread. That thread's basic thrust is on the longest day. Anyhow, no worries as the decision of the Editor is final. After that one more thread has been posted on the Yoga day. The Editor has locked that but not deleted it. What is the difference?
