Thread locking vs. thread taken down

I see where some threads are locked and no further comments can be made, but several times lately threads have been taken down.  The "Sorry, you've reached this page in error" comment appears.  What is the difference b/w a thread being locked and one taken down?  Are the ones taken down done so at the OP's request while the ones locked are done so at the moderator's discretion?  It seems like several of the threads I've been following have been taken down.  It's similar to watching a movie until almost the end and then the movie just being cut off and you have no idea how it ended.

 From my understanding a post is locked if a bitchfest is going on, and they get deleted  usually if the OP is against TOS. Now if I am wrong someone feel free to correct me lol.


But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
