General Discussion has merged with Off-topic, and this thread is asking a question, therefore, it has purpose.

Cool it.

They get locked for obvious reasons, off topic, spam, one line openers. If you make a topic at least spend some time making it worth while one line isn't even worth the effort of clicking the topic title.

The question has been answered, so the thread no longer has a purpose. It will be locked.

I think the general purpose of locking a thread is to delete it - but in such a way that the admin will post the last post in the thread explaining why it is being locked, and then nobody else can post, and then other threads push it down the forum until it falls off the bottom.

However, many admins don't post before locking, and so they might as well just delete the topic altogether. In this case, I wouldn't understand why they lock the topic either - just delete if you're not going to explain.

You can find out a lot more about why threads get locked or deleted in my signature.

Because they're dumb as fuck, pointless or filled with arguements. End of discussion.
