The question "Why does the Outlook PST repair tool always report that many errors?" was protected 6 minutes after being asked. It did not receive any kind of reaction (comments, answers). Therefore, no spam either. Why was the question protected?
(I do not object to the protection. Just curious.)

We've had quite a few "PST repair" questions created by spammers as bait for their future spam answers. This protect was manually done by @slhck, likely as a preventative measure.
