I just have a note that I have many back-links, unfortunately, a big ratio of them are now "expired", "webpage not available" or "broken".

So is there any cause to fear about them? I barely want to avoid them because I guess they all already rejected so no need to disavow them again.

What is your thought, please? I'm continuing on good thinking?

Broken external - outgoing links can be considered as quality signal to your users but to search engines as well. If you have many broken links across website, that will lead to conclusion that the website is not updated for quite some time.

End result can lead to rank dropping and in some cases penalization (if we are talking about excessive external linking). !-!
