Most likely because Joe missed it when he was locking threads in ATN . Don't be surprised if it's locked soon as attention has been drawn to it not being locked.

The Beatles Bible 2020 non-Canon Poll Part One: 1958-1963 and Part Two: 1964-August 1966

Due to the very large amount of threads that had to be locked manually (since the only other option was lock all of 'ATU' and that was ruled out quickly for numerous reasons) a few were naturally missed. As said I don't know how many times, the forum is a Beatles forum, folk here surely knew they were joining a Beatles forum and if we open a thread for Pink Floyd why not Dylan, Queen, Prince, Bon Jovi, Katrina and the Waves, Bob Seeger, Emmylou Harris, Glen Miller, Heart and whoever else anyone feels is worthy of a discussion. The list is endless as would be the requests and arguments. I have a memory on the board of a conversion for a one thread suits all artists thread but it was ruled out as it would be chaos with a conversation on Queen being interrupted with an in-depth discussion on the use of the cymbal on the best of Heart CD (or some other examples). If you wish we (the mods) can correct the oversight and lock the Led Zeppelin one (which we have not discussed) or accept it happened, enjoy the fact it's open, move on and stop highlighting the fact it was missed.
ATN was agreed and opened by Joe when the forum was much smaller, he would never have imagined then that it would become at times so domineering as I doubt he thought so many would join the forum. We mods therefore have a duty to Joe to ensure the very heart of the forum remains and that is what we do. At times measures to do so are not met with unanimous euphoria and cheering when announced but are always done with the forum's core purpose central.
One thing I will add is that if folk do start going thru the depths of the forum and start pulling up the long-forgotten unlocked threads in ATU for whatever reason, we will look at locking them and almost certainly will.
