I've just stumbled upon a highly active question:
Well, 2 years and 3 months ago is almost yesterday?
I suppose it's the lock manually applied to the controversial questions, but aren't they expect to expire? What's the purpose of keeping protections years after it was necessary?
I can't remember seeing that before. Is it because the moderator has forgotten to set the timeout on the lock, or are moderators expected to periodically check locked questions and remove locks? Or the users should flag such questions?
If there's no timeout to be set, wouldn't it make sense to have one?
