When I click on "Wilders Security Forums > Forum Information > General Topics" I'm directed to a webpage with the address Code: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/forumdisplay.php?s =66c7a860125659f9b18ee4d180474766&f=5 . If I remove Code: s =66c7a860125659f9b18ee4d180474766&  in the address and hit the enter key, I'm directed to the same page. I assume removing the "s=*" before saving the address to my favorites isn't detrimental since this forum does it automatically for posts. What use does the "s=*" have?  After clicking the "Preview Post" button of this message, the "s=*" portion of the addresses were removed, so I added a space between the "s" and the "=" since quoting it or displaying it as code removed it too.
