Can a hat be lost if its criteria no longer applies?

I just earned the pirate hat for this answer.

If the OP comes back and changes his mind to accept my answer, do I still keep the hat?

My precious hats!

When you upvote a post in the review queue without reading it you lose all of your hats. –  Servy Dec 21 '12 at 16:38

How dare you say 'My precious' and allude to hairy hobbits when we're dealing with this hairy Punyon outbreak? You insensitive clod! –  Tim Post Dec 21 '12 at 16:41

That's better. We'll overlook this for now, it won't go down on your permanent record. BTW, Congrats @JasonPunyon :) –  Tim Post Dec 21 '12 at 16:45

Hats are just like badges; once earned you don't lose them even when the criteria are no longer met.

To quote my self from Can a hat be lost if its criteria no longer applies? :

You do not lose hats.

I had an answer upvoted and then later downvoted but I kept my hat.
