I didn't find any help related to this topic. How does the community protect a question? What is the logic behind that? Here is an example question:

protected by Community♦ 58 mins ago

This question is protected to prevent "thanks!", "me too!", or spam answers by new users. To answer it, you must have earned at least 10 reputation on this site.

  • @gnat i don't see that question is much older and not so much view that stuck in mind may be some other reason? – Qaisar Satti Apr 27 '16 at 12:48

If a question attracts a lot of spam answers then when they're deleted the question automatically gets protected, as it's clearly been identified as a target for spammers for whatever reason.

Moderators and users with the Protect Questions privilege can also protect questions, but that's a manual process. Community does it as a result of posts getting flagged and deleted.
