hi experts,

for a while my forum become  slower every time I get these types of urls
normally they should request a topic number  example:  (vb/showthread.php?t=987)
but instead they request (vb/showthread.php?t=ANOTHER_WEIRD_URL) as it shown in the code option.

my question: does this affect my forum? how can I stop them.

thx
