Can you search for mobileread links to the dead thread (including links to posts in that thread)?
Unfortunately, only a site mod (or creator of the post containing a now-dead link) can replace those dead links to point at the new merged location.
Any descriptive references such as "see post #234 above" could also be incorrect now if the post numbers changed.
Otherwise, we need to wait and report dead links when we stumble across them.
