Just wondering whether the Hot Links generator shouldn't be configured to ignore locked out threads, as per the example from just now, because from what I've seen, being closed to new posts usually means the content has broken the PF rules.

I love peruseing those old threads! I'm talking about the "Related Threads" at the bottom.

I enjoy those as well, and because they have the date and locked / unlocked symbol, my expectation is different to a 'Hot Thread', which I expect to at least be able to participate in - assuming I'm able, there's a lot of posts where I've no idea what's being discussed 😄

In both Classical and Relativity, at least three of the five "hot" threads are really low quality. Someone refusing to learn and simply restating how wrong everyone else is, or iterating "...well what about <slightly modified scenario>?" can generate a lot of posts very quickly. Thoughtful posters tend to post more slowly because they think before they type.
