Edit old threads

I have some old threads (several years old) that have links in them. Is there a way I can edit out those links or make them inactive? The threads are closed. The reason being is that I’m getting referrals that dead end at a 404 Page not found. That has to be frustrating to anyone going to those threads looking for help or examples. On the my end I’m doling out 404s left and right, which is frustrating when I’m trying to fix anything that should be fixed. Those pages just do not exist anymore. If I were to do a redirect then I think the visitor would be even more confused because the site doesn’t look or act like it did that far back.

Just report each post and an Advisor or Team Leader can look at the links and disable and/or remove the dead links.
