Correct - it still counts as a game in progress, even if the game is 30+ moves further on now. Why? If 30 moves later is OK, how about 25? Or 10? or 5? Who can say at what point anything said will be on no benefit to you now? Or, it may be an extreme example, but what if someone pointed out that a move 30 moves ago left c2 undefended, something that you'd not spotted and will win you the game?
This is why there is blanket rule against discussion of game in progress. Please hold your questions until the game is finished.
