I'm a bit unsure why the following question was locked: Should the weight of downvotes be increased?
Typically, locked questions display a specific reason for being locked. Strangely, the linked post gave no lock reason, only showing a user and timestamp.
While the post references Stack Overflow, the question topic seems applicable to the entire Stack Exchange network. From what I can tell, the post didn't fit any of the pre-existing lock reasons.
Why was the question locked? Should the post be unlocked if the discussion is still relevant?
