In any case, Go60Guy will still get traffic.
The "question mark issue" is often simplified and misunderstood. Search engine have no problems what so ever with?-marks in itself. Search engines use the?-mark as a way to detect dynamically delivered content. For a number of reasons it is much more difficult to crawl dynamic content on the web, so most spiders go very easy once they detect a?-mark - a dynamic page.
Google is the search engine today that "dare the most" when it comes to dynamic pages (but consequently also the engine that have most "dynamic clutter" in the index because of this).
Many search engines will spider a page with just one parameter: page.asp?parameter_1=354 but as you add more and more parameters less engines will dare to crawl the pages and eventually even Google give up.
Hope this explain the?-mark issue a little better, :)
