Googlebot is spidering all my discussion forums,all dynamic url's but not spidering any posts in discussion forums.

One of my discussion forums is in www.sitename.com/cgi1/ubb1/ulti1.cgi?ubb1=forum&f=17

while corresponding posts are in

I want my posts to be indexed by Googlebot

Thanks for your time

Too many parameters in your URL, I guess...
AFAIK Google does not spider any URL with 3 or more parameters.

I think during this last update the bot has gotten a little better with long query strings... I saw deepbot go deeper than ever into my snitz forums. I was actually thinking about switching out my forum software to improve indexing but this time deepbot has drilled all the way down to the very last topic.
