It's a little confusing when a thread suddenly gets locked with no notification. I am old and slow and it took me longer than it should have to work it out.

I've seen a few where Mauricio has told a few posters to take a deep breath and calm down. After another page or two and things have remained heated, suddenly a big padlock appears. Self evident usually.
