Whats the difference between a locked question and closed question?

(I'm using the SO API and this appears for each question)

  • Please check out What is a "locked" post? To summarize, though, a Locked question prevents not only new answers like a Closed question, but also comments, votes, editing, and deletion. The latter points also apply to a Locked answer (as answers are capable of being locked). – Grace Note Nov 22 '10 at 18:51
