I don't see what the need for locking this thread is:
The OP is aware that he has posted in the wrong forum. He is not posting further. But by locking the thread the overeager moderator is denying the OP help. There may just be someone who could guide him to, if not the correct, at least a helpful forum.
Moreover, there is no abuse peing posted nor has the thread degenerated into a joke... so why this heavy-handed locking?
