This page is only a placeholder to mark a time in the past before which comments are forbidden, as a crude way of controlling spam.

This is hooked into ikiwiki.setup with the following two directives:

 # PageSpec of pages where posting new comments is not allowed
 comments_closed_pagespec: 'creation_before(comment_forbid_before)'

 # the comment_forbid_before controls the flag date before which comments are not allowed
 locked_pages: comment_forbid_before or [...]

It should otherwise not be of concern to anyone.

Update: this doesn't actually work, see this bug report.
