Probably because it was getting too controversial.

oh, I see now. It's funny how I see threads get locked without a reason.

If the person that locked the thread doesn't post a reason, that usually means they just felt like the reason was obvious enough they didn't need to explain it (though we've been making more of an effort to avoid doing that).

This one as well doesn't have a reason.

We don't need a list of threads that were locked without a reason given. Especially for threads from almost a year ago.

Both COVID threads had a lock reason saying they were temporary. Neither one has been reopened.
