I deleted this answer over a year ago, for reasons I do not remember. I assume it was due to some hostility in the comments, but I don't know anymore. (The comments had been moved to chat, and apparently been deleted in the meantime; or I just cannot find them.)
Just now, the answer was undeleted by a moderator -- followed by an immediate lock:
This post has been locked while disputes about its content are being resolved. For more info visit meta.
This keeps me from deleting the answer again. But that's not the issue; I am fine with the answer, and stand by it.
But the lock also keeps me from communicating with the moderator who issued the lock in the (IMHO) appropriate place -- the comments of that answer.
So... can we "resolve the disputes about its content" (if there are any)? I feel this would be much easier if the answer had been undeleted and not locked, and the moderator asked whether I would agree to have the answer stand instead of locking it down.
