    Default Locked out !

    There is a new post by somi-77 with no reply, but which is locked.
    If I might ask a moderator, what determines this action?

    If there's no obvious reason, it could be human error or the database recorded the wrong setting for some reason; maybe it was very busy at the time. It does happen occasionally.

    It's open: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...erduction.html
    It may well have been a case of the person clicking on something they're unfamiliar with.

    Hmmm; I nhave just re-opened it. If it closes itself again, there must have been an error at the time of posting.
