I had been weary of linking it in a question in case some over zealous moderator took it down again, but then I thought surely there would be a safe guard in place so that once a question is reinstated it can just be hidden again to be reviewed when that's already happened.
They can be hidden and reviewed multiple times.

It's safe to refer to an old reinstated question without worrying about it being censored again.
Once an admin deems something ok, it's fine. It is not censorship, however, to have to abide by the rules you agreed to when you joined the site. If content is questionable, it gets reviewed. Not that hard a concept to understand, bro.
The moderators can hide the comment. Then the admins will review it and choose whether or not it is ok to be removed permanently or if it's not preaching any sort of code it will be u hidden and left untouched for everyone to view it.
I think they can be hidden by other moderators even after reinstation, although I am not sure. But if you have hidden it and it is reinstated, and you try to hide it again, then it says "You have already hidden this opinion!" or something of that sort.
