Discrepancies between releases on scener/group page and actual releases

I noticed the following discrepancies:

The crack alien brood listed on Jala's page does not exist.
The 2 alien brood cracks listed on Bytebreaker's page does not exist.
The crack alien brood listed on JEDI's page does not exist.
The crack alien brood listed on The Hobbitt's page does not exist.

These releases seem to not exist since they all give a status code 302 Found when clicking them and forward you to the CSDb main page.

But, when consulting the web services XML result, these releases actually do exist:
https://csdb.dk/webservice/?type=release&id=108032&depth=2 (Same version as on JEDI page)

And a leftover:
release id 24016 does not have a working page on csdb, but you can look it up via the xml web services: https://csdb.dk/webservice/?type=release&id=24016&depth=2

I would be nice if these discrepancies can be taken care of.

for some reason those downloads are marked as invisible to public so you have to be logged in to see the dl links.

seems it is an old problem and still happening.

Usually dirty hacks will bite you sooner or later, always.

I am sorry to say this, but groepaz is right in the linked thread. Deleting the download link would have fixed the problem instantly and without the need for a dirty hack messing up the integrity of the data CSDb is showing us.

I prefer to have DL links available only to regular users, than not having them visible to anyone, only mods have the ability to look in the deleted files.
If we start deleting all cracks because copyright problems, and delete old demos because the authors are ashamed of what they did 30 years ago, we can close CSDb for good.
