    Yesterday I tried to reply to the thread Is this oregano? only to learn that the thread is locked. locked_thread.jpg

    Today I've noticed that there is a replay by someone else (forum moderator), but the thread is still locked to me. locked_thread_2.jpg

    What is going on?

    Odd! I hadn't noticed it was locked; being a moderator I was able to answer even with it being locked (which is why I didn't notice it was). But since the thread looks safe (nothing to suggest it is spam), I've unlocked it.

    But why it was locked? By OP?

    Yes, @Eric La Fountaine locked it, unlocked it, then locked it again all within two minutes. Maybe he had some reason, or finger trouble. Thanks for pointing it out.

    OP = original poster.

    I think Eric was just trying to do his work too early in the morning, based on the time of the actions (plus he's traveling and on a not-as-handy laptop). Honest mistake from what I can tell.
