Delete causes "thank you for your contribution pop-in", broken-link causes "thank you! ajax"

Deleting a link is annoying because of the pop-in, why not do the same as for the broken-link selection and just give a quick "thank you".

Hi Florian, thanks for your feedback! The reason for the current set up is that when a user clicks 'mark as broken,' the link is simply reported for our team to check and remove as needed. When a user clicks 'remove,' the link is immediately removed from the system, and this can often become a spam issue, therefore slowing down multiple link removals by having that extra thank you popup is helpful to us in spam prevention.

The site's always a work in progress so this system will continue to evolve, so we'll certainly keep this feedback in mind as we continue to update the site!
