Not just that they go dead. As explained in #104, expired domains get re-sold to strangers who can rig a server to answer "any" URL with unexpected content.

"The domain name of a now-defunct website used by news publishers and others to inline videos in articles has been configured to inject porn into those pages.
"In 2017, vid.me closed its doors,....Sometime after vid.me shut down, the domain was updated so that it pointed to the very NSFW website of Five Star HD Porn, the name of which should give you an indication of the nature of its content.....
"And so, ..., webpages that embedded those vid.me videos ...ended up inlining the homepage of the hardcore porno website, and thus displayed thumbnails of and links to X-rated material."

I've noticed some images are like 3x the size of the screen and I have to reload the page to read anything. I think the poster(s) believed their images would resize to fit the text window until a reader clicked on it. My observation is that doesn't always seem to work on DIYaudio.

Egad! OK, I do recall that possibility. Not what an innocent DIY Audio surfer wants to encounter while looking up bias testing...
