Taking Out the Trash

Here is the problem.

Yesterday, an observant Sifter noticed that a couple of my old posts were dead links. James discarded them. I found other working links with the exact same content, but was unable to edit my posts because the videos were already in the dumpster.

Then I lost about 40 votes. Then they foreclosed on the family farm. Then the terrorists attacked and the stingray stung my daughter because I live in a Democratic party state.

Is there any way that the community can either establish a provisional discard mode that allows the original poster 3 days to find a working link before the post disappears. I don't want dead links clluttering up the place, but I would prefer to fix the link rather than start over and push them through the queue again.

These are the links:
