Happened just now:
Client: Please remove this page from the site ASAP, and tell me when its done.
Me: Done
Client: what's wrong am getting an error code(404) when I click on the link.

Am not sure how to reply to that

    Maybe he meant to show an empty page instead?

    Send him a copy of RFC7231 *SCNR*

    Ask him to define "remove". Maybe he's using some non-standard interpretation...

    He just tried to recall his mail so I guess I don't have to reply.

    Better remove link along with page. Don't show him a door which leads to nowhere.

    Maybe you were supposed to redirected elsewhere, or make a real 404 page instead of "an error code"...
    Just sayin'

    @-FLX he landed on a "real" 404 page.

    Sometimes I prefer to add a 301 redirect instead remove the "page".

    You know, maybe he meant to delete the link itself? 😅

    If a page is being removed, shouldn't all references to that page (hyperlinks or redirections) should also be removed from the site ?
