I have my tricks to find judgmental or offensive opinions or comments... just running through the questions and judge which ones were likely to attract them!
Anything about religions, race, or "delicate" properties of a person would get "shoot with sharp" opinions.
Each week I'd find 2 or 3 opinions attacking either black people, or homosexuals, muslims, jews,... and hide them immediately.
One or another way, recently my moderation turned to 80 to 90% questions. Rarely an opinion and I think the reason is the number of questions likely to trigger "wrong" opinions has decreased.
Interested to hear your opinions :D

I think unless the question is blatantly racist or something it should be allowed to be asked. For example I'm Christian but I don't have issue with atheists asking questions that disagree with my opinion so long as it isn't something like "ll christians should die" or something like that. If this website gets too much censorship it will lose it's appeal and value fast. Its better just to remove the offensive comments in my opinion.2

It is other way around for me because the quantity of mods has been considerably increased and questions can easily be seen in the site feed (while in case of opinions and comments, you need to open each thread) so other mods can see them easily as compared to opinions/comments.
Being a senior moderator, I've better understanding of what should be hidden. I spend my time scrutinizing opinions and comments and surprisingly, I find a lot of negative posts 'on which' a lot of mod have already submitted their opinions on. It means that newly selected mods don't have that better understanding or knowledge.
I'm not that active as I used to be so, it's difficult for me to find questions in an instant.
