Do 4chan image links 404 with the thread?

We all know that threads 404 in a matter of minutes if they have bad material, and at most, a successful thread stays active for at most (at least in /b/) 2 hours.
My question is, what about image links? Do you happen to know if image links 404 along with a thread? And if image links stay longer than thread links, how long do they stay as active links? (i.e., lets say I copy paste an image link from 4chan because I don't want to download the image directly to my computer. If I try to open up this link at another time [whether a few hours from now, a few days, etc], would 4chan still have that link active to let me view the image? Or does it 404 after a specific time?)
I've gotten mixed responses from /b/ and this forum should obviously help me out better. Some said that only threads 404, but image links do not. But why would a website like this (http://www.4chanlink.org/) exist if 4chan images DIDN'T 404? That website downloads the image from the direct 4chan link and "mirrors" it on their site for around 14 days.
Curious because this is obviously an image board, and it seems like undue stress on the servers if image links stayed active longer than threads.

OK, so I'm trying to figure out what every board hates the most. Here's my incomplete list:
/d/: Consensual Sex in the Missionary Position for the Sole Purpose of Procreation
/g/: Any operating system that isn't Gentoo
/h/: Western/3D porn
/k/: Airsoft, DEAGLE BRAND DEAGLEs
/r/: Requests that show up on the first page of google
/v/: Casuals, or, depending on who you ask, Everything.
/co/: B^Uckley, Preston.
/fit/: People who make excuses for not being /fit/
/mu/: All mainstream music.
/pol/: Jews and the JIDF
/tg/: THAT GUYs, Fetish DMs, Elves.
Can you guys help me fill in the blanks, and perhaps suggest corrections for my current list?
15 min "janitor" bans

Is this _really_ the way to solve the issues that 4chan has been facing? The moderators struggle to keep up with the report queue and the vast amounts of shitposting, trolling, rule breaking etc... so they let some random sperglord janitors who are new to the job hand out a 15 min ban to anyone who posts an opinion they disagree with?
I am worried about how easily this will be (and already is being) abused by the janitor staff. Don't like a certain game? Temp ban. Not watching JoJo? Temp ban. Don't follow the herd and spout generic opinions? Temp ban.
Yes, it seems like an easy way for a janitor to win a discussion. Someone posts a dissenting opinion, janitor temp bans them, continues to discuss without the now banned poster.. And if the janitor is questioned about his temp ban abuse, he throws out some lame excuse about just caring too much about board X and just wanting to do his part etc etc
I'm just blowing off some steam I guess, but I sure hope you guys don't get temp banned for no apparent reason and I really hope moot reconsiders this huge step backwards.
