According to the forum FAQ:

Quote:
Locked topics are set this way by either the forum moderator or board administrator. You cannot reply to locked topics and any poll contained inside is automatically ended. Topics may be locked for many reasons.
Basically, locks prevent anyone else from posting on that thread. The mods lock topics when they feel there is excessive flaming (members ragging hard on others with no constructive outcome). When a topic has been posted more than once in different sections of the forum, the mods will usually lock those and direct members to the post listed in the correct section. Posts by trolls are also locked.

I'm sure there are other reasons this can happen, but these are the most popular uses I have seen.
