I'll just add:
Regarding why there is a slight difference in how DT material and other band material is handled, in addition to the fact that, as pointed out, this is a DT forum, the other reason is simply that we don't have time to be the Internet piracy police, which would include having to know the release date for every band out there. If you are discussion PT before the release date, for example, it comes down to, if a mod who is a fan and knows about the leak catches you, you are busted, but if a mod who isn't a fan and doesn't know it is pre-release date reads it, you're in the clear. That's just too difficult to try to enforce. So, yeah, if you say something that tips us off that it is pirated, you're busted. If not, we aren't going to go digging. So to put the rule a different way, for DT, it's a "zero tolerance" policy. For all other bands, it's more of a "don't ask/don't tell" policy. It doesn't mean we approve. But it means we aren't going to do anything if you keep it to yourself.
As far as, for example, saying that something is on the Internet, it's a close call, but I would back up the mod decision that was made for this reason: You aren't saying where it is, but you are encouraging those who might not have otherwise done so to go look for it. And again, we don't want this site being used for that.
