This question was closed for being off-topic, but it was also locked: Prerequisites for a career in spintronics based Quantum Computing
I find this unusual because questions on this site (and on the whole Stack Exchange network) are rarely locked, and only locked in extreme circumstances, not every time a question is closed for being off-topic.
When a question gets "locked", it is not even possible to flag it if the community believes it was a bad decision to lock it! Therefore this Meta post serves as my "flag" to have the question unlocked and to give an explanation for why it was locked in the first place, and it can also be an invitation for the community to discuss how locking should be done from now on.
When a question is locked: you can no longer vote, bookmark, follow, comment, vote-to-reopen, vote-to-delete, etc. It is an extreme measure, and just because a question is closed as off-topic doesn't mean it has to be locked. If this question is going to continue to be locked, I think we do have to have a discussion about what the criteria for such a decision would be, because there's plenty of questions that were closed for being off-topic but are not locked.
