How are folks defining 'discarded pages' ? Pages with links that go
nowhere? Or maybe pages with outdated and irrelevant information?

When my pages w/unchecked links become old, I begin to think they
look like gritty dirt thrown into the lubricant of the Web, making
the viscous fluid is more viscous than it ought to be.

(I have a few viscous pages like that, but nothing that I consider
very important)
