So I was poking around my town's forums, and I saw this post for Windows 7 .iso's, and since I am an uploader that has administrative powers, I was wondering should I delete this post.

Downloading iso files for Windows Operating Systems is not illegal. Only if you cracked it or something would it be illegal.

It's only legal if it does not include a crack for Windows. If it is just the .iso and nothing else, it's normally fine.

I don't think that direct links to Windows 7 ISOs are legal.

What I meant was that any free download of Windows 7 is illegal.
