You see what I mean?

All these pages are being listed as being broken in Webmaster tools....

Is there any way to try and de-list these?

What do you mean that they're "coming up as broken"?

If you mean that Google is seeing error 404s for these URLs it usually indicates a problem with the server, quite often a corrupted SQL database.  If these are not real URLs it could be broken links that are malformed (either on your site or someone else's).


If you have not recently REPAIRed and/or OPTIMIZEd your blog database you should do so.  You may need to install a plugin or module to do that.


Blogs that receive a lot of traffic (especially rogue traffic from botnets) and/or which publish a lot of content can sometimes corrupt their databases.  Usually it's easily repairable.
