A 301/302 response is a valid response. Where the redirection goes?

What do you mean by triple domain?

The issues that I know might be there:
a) Hosting providers placing their ads in a wrong section
b) Broken links
c) Sites taken over by squatters

Any such links can be thrown away immediately.

Huh.  A lot to review.

For a newcomer (like I was a few years ago), the images are good, they
make the page look better.  For the current me, removing all them
starts sound like a good idea, but I am not convinced yet.

Anyway, a broken image is usually an indication that a site has gone.

The links are generated by MoinMoin. It would be better to make
MoinMoin itself mark them as "nofollow".  It might be even easier to
put "nofollow" into META tag in the head section of the page, or in an
HTTP response header.
