Threads with no closing date, again

Did anyone ever figure out why some threads seem to just stay open indefinitely?
The default setting is that a thread closes 14 days after last response.
Yet this thread here just started again after 2 months of dormancy.

There is a thread in world news that opened back up a couple weeks ago after being closed for 4 months. I was also curious as to the reason why.
