Dead Links in Emails

Lately I have been getting dead links in my emails. What say you?

e.g. http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...0&goto=newpost

http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...0&goto=newpost

http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...1&goto=newpost

They don't seem to be complete with the .html at the end.

I think you are right about something missing in the URL. But it's not the missing html.
Code:
http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t4841&goto=newpost
It's not html, it's php. The ? is a divider that says a parameter follows. Looks like it is supposed to be saying goto the new post in thread 4841.

This doesn't help you any, but maybe someday down the road, knowing a php URL looks different may help you in some way...

Sorry if this is completely useless, but I am sitting here programming so I have my computer science hat on...
