the opposite true? Any kind of reaction or redirection will only
fire if and when someone actually clicks that link. Running a crawl
can prevent that. And what would you redirect to? "Sorry, that link
seems to be dead, please tell me about it."? The user will work the
first part out for himself and in nine cases out of ten ignore the
second. On top of that you'll make it nearly impossible for him to
look for the page himself, most lost pages are down to internal
restructuring in my experinence.
