I don't remember locking being used before that. Maybe my memory's faulty,
but I get the feeling I'm witnessing some minor rewriting (or let's just say
"changing the emphasis") of history here.
Internet Archive shows when the main page was locked (made
"read-only"). It can't really be used to prove that nothing else was
locked before that, though (hard to prove a negative).
Of course, I think it's pretty clear that things have gotten more
locked-down over the years, regardless of whether or not things were
ever 100% completely open.
