    Thanks,your straight answer was followed with a question mark.Thought maybe you were guessing. This must then be something the powers that be decided should not be allowed to continue.

    It means The Dude does not abide. Which is the opposite of what you want, is The Dude abiding.

    My curiosity was aroused wondering what or how a locked thread vs an N/A was decided upon.In the end I guess they both mean the same thing.Don't Go There!

    I think N/A usually stands for Not Applicable - which I often use on forms where a question doesn't apply to me. However, in the context of a locked thread, it could be that the locker meant Not Available.

    Yup I understand that explanation as I do use it myself it just didn't make sense to me for closing a thread.
