Google images index

One annoying thing with Google image search is that a lot of the links are dead. It stores the smaller copy of an image, but most of the time when I try to view the full size version the image is not longer available. The index needs to be cleaned up and the dead links removed. I would think it would be easy enough to do automatically by just checking each link for a 404 or other error.

It would make the index of images a lot cleaner. Maybe it already happens, but if it does obviously not very well. At least the main search index is much cleaner, I don't come over many dead links.

Hi!

Cause of the fact that your email adress, jasun@no-spam-remove-me.fatality.co.uk, seems not to work I couldn't figure out another way to contact you then to write down a message here. Hope you just could contact me cause I have a question about your blacklist :)

Best Regards
Dan

Hi,

Sorry I got your email but forgot to reply yet.

It doesn't work for obvious reasons, it says remove-me on it it's to keep most of the spam away when posting an email address of mine on here.
