what do you think about not deleting dead links anymore, but instead marking them as dead? Could also be moved to the bottom of the list to a greyed out cemetery section.

If links are deleted, it means a loss of information. A use case for dead links is to confirm a site is, in fact, dead, and one isn't just too stupid to find it on a search engine etc.. This is especially useful in times of censored search engine results and geoblocking of some content.

Spoiler: show
Yes, i know the info is still in the modification history, but it would be nicer on the "official" part of the site.
