Locking old threads

In a further bid to make these forums less prone to spam bot attack we're going to look at locking older threads.
Currently a spam bot can reactivate an old thread, which pushes it to the top of that forum list, where it becomes live again despite its age and resolved status.
Also, old threads in forums such as Consumerwatch sometimes get hijacked, rather than new threads being opened for new problems.
Locking older threads should stop that.

True enought I suppose. I'll have to go back a few pages, just for the thrill of it :)
