    I read about people getting their videos removed by flaggers all the time..
    Does this happen to bigger channels? Like my channel has 11k subs and around 2m subs only. But if I grow my channel, do I need to be scared of being taken down by flaggers? All my videos are legit, gaming, fitness blablabla, none are hacking etc...

    As long as you follow all of YouTube terms of service, policies and guidelines to the letter, you need not be too worried about your videos being taken down by flaggers. Remember that flagged videos are not automatically taken down by the system. If YouTube removes your video after reviewing it, you can assume that it was removed purposefully. However, don't ever assume that you can get away with breaking YouTube's terms of service and community guidelines just because you have a 'large' channel. Just a few weeks back YouTube temporarily terminated WatchMojo's channel yet it had over 1.4 Million subscribers.

    Is this breaking the terms of service?

    Having a couple thousand PPD videos, but all the videos are legit, nothing crack or hacking games etc, the niche is highly saturated and no one gets banned...

    The Link in the description is my website, which links to a download, which links to cleanfiles.

    Unfortunately most PPD videos are against YouTube terms of service simply due to the deceptive manner in which they are presented. For example, If you have a video called FREE MINECRAFT PREMIUMS GENERATOR or DOWNLOAD THIS APP FOR FREE and then your video links to a PPD site, then it breaks YouTube terms for having misleading Title.

    Youtube doesn't ban big channels, they just get their videos removed if they don't compile with the ToS, as long as you are 100% legit you can claim a dispute and your video/channel will be back, but if you want to link to a pay per download site you will get busted very fast.

    Clowns like that, don't tend to last long here, so I assume he will get himself banned at some point.
