Did some digging and found this ost in which I refer to previous discussions:

The servers are located in the Netherlands and Dutch law is indeed the basis for our rules However, because we operate in an international environment, we have to consider other laws as well. Furthermore, to avoid a lot of grey area discussions, we chose to draw a strict line and apply it as consistent as possible. However, if a thread is not clearly about illegal matter (e.g. it only mentions a download, but not the source or the downloaded content), meaning it could also be a legal download, we may have our doubts, but it is then our policy not to close or delete it.
To what extent it is obvious that the user is requesting help with something illegal is mostly up o the respective moderator. If you don’t agree with a moderator’s decision, you can always contact the moderator to prove his wrong. If that doesn’t work, you can always appeal to a more senior member.
