They really should not have been removed.
Wrong. It is illegal for sites to host the PS2 BIOS as well. So unless you dump your PS2 BIOS yourself, then the PS2 emulator is illegal as well. We have no way of verifying that you have the right to run the software. And I am not going into each thread/post and moderate it subjectively, so no emulator/piracy discussions. Period.

If you want to discuss emulators and ROM's and pirated games, there are plenty of forums around for that. Google will point you to them.
