Yahoo Creates Bogus Pages by Appending Queries

    I visited Yahoo Site Explorer, and it reports that I have over 1,000 pages on my site. The trouble is, that there are only about 300.

    What they have done on hundreds of pages, is drop the .htm from the end of the file name, and replace it with one of the following -

    ?D=A
    ?D=D

    ?M=A
    ?M=D

    ?N=A
    ?N=D

    ?S=A
    ?S=D

    Does anyone know what these queries stand for?
    And why they dropped the .htm?

    Thank you for any answers.

    <edit>The webmaster is allowed to delete a maximum of 25 URLs. The trouble is, I need to delete hundreds! This is just one more example of Yahoo not having a clue. He||, they can't even tell us what it means. I have searched high and low. I have no choice but to walk away, and forget about it. Just let them play with their bogus As, Ds, Ms, Ns, and Ss, which always produce a 404.
