Subject Re: A way to find dead links for external pages
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2016 22:01:23 GMT
What security issues does this present?

Remember, the link targets have been selected by the wiki authors so they
are desirable links rather than spam.  I can't quite see a threat model if
all you're doing is reporting a HTTP status code.  Isn't this what search
engines do by default?
