In an effort to better understand the goings-on of the site, I'd like to know why the accepted answer on this post was locked. It seems to be an appropriate answer, but now I am not able to upvote it.

I understand this may seem like a duplicate question, but all locks may not have the same reasoning.

It was locked to prevent a rollback war, and to prevent users from defacing the post, which you can see in the edit history.

Unfortunately, locking a post locks all aspects, including votes, but sometimes it's necessary when people are feeling destructive.

    @TimS., this appears to be a user backlash, after an incident here. – user106385 Dec 16 '15 at 22:54
  • IMO, the problem was solved, no? – Braiam Dec 25 '15 at 18:33
  • @Braiam Yes, I've unlocked the post now, as the main issue has been resolved. – Ash Dec 27 '15 at 5:23
