I recently asked a question, and after a while that post was locked and comments were disabled. Why did that happen with that question? The message said:
Locked for 22 hours. Comments on this question have been disabled, but it is still accepting new answers and other interactions. Learn more.
And, it seems that there can be many reasons for post lock like
- if the post is deleted via "spam" or "abusive" flags
- if the post is migrated to another site
- if the post was migrated to the current site, and then rejected
- if a question was merged into another question, the answers will be moved and the source question will be locked
But which of these is applicable to my post out of the above reasons? And what was the benefit of locking it and only preventing comments?
