an interesting point. i used to have a site that used the query
"?page=foo". once it was well indexed by google, i got a ton of
automated bot attacks (20-30 a week? it's been a while...) where they
would try urls like "?page=http://example.com/badscript.txt". i built
the CMS right, so they weren't a threat, but it still was a _lot_ of
when i switched the site over to clean urls, the bots stopped. completely.
as a side note, i now have a great collection of interesting scripts...
