Dear web designer

When your reply to my Request for Proposals includes a list of web sites that you designed, and 30% of them no longer load, it makes me very happy. I got too many replies and you have made it easier to eliminate your proposal.

Thank you,
Tom

So, what do you infer from 30% of them not loading?

I've hired freelance instructional designers and if nearly 1/3 of the links they submitted didn't work I would presume that either (a)the links were very old and/or (b)this candidate does not show attention to detail.

I'd rule a candidate out for either of those reasons.

When you email someone a list of 20 URLs under the heading of "By the way you may browse through some of my recent work on wordpress customization and theme designing live at the following urls" and 30% don't work, it shows a lack of attention to detail.

Delete the ones that don't work, eh?

Some have submitted URLs that were all on their own website so they can't go away. Others had URLs that were links to JPGs to show how good their mockups are.
