    It is because we quilters have a tendency to get a bit rowdy. So they lock the door....LOL

    It has always been a possibility but seldom needed :lol:

    But as was said earlier the rowdier it gets the more necessary it becomes to maintain some order :lol:

    No sense getting hurt /bitter/angry feelings if we can prevent them :lol:

    It's not used often---only when the conversation seems to start hurting feelings or is looking like it's heading to something really controversal or against the rules. It's used to keep us playing nice. I also think that the person that started the thread can request that it be locked. You can pm Patrice and ask her when, why and how it's used. She can explain it better since she's a moderator. I think sometimes is used when a subject has been hashed to death too but I could be wrong.
