All good urls should contain a ?_function=(whatever) in the beginning of the query string like this...
Googlebot (or some other entity) is finding query strings like this...
...and other variations of this BUT all the muxed variation start with ?ForumMasterThreads_uid1=(n)
I would like to disallow all of these but need to make sure to allow all others. Is this the correct syntax and would this work?
By the way, I checked, double checked, triple checked and yes... quadriple checked my code and there are no pages that generate these URLs. Any help would be appreciated.

Note, though that parameter order in a url is not normally significant. This URL would work in most instances:
So, as long as you're sure you aren't linking to parameters in different orders things should be OK.
Incidentally, there's a chance Google is creating these URLs as a result its 'form crawling' behaviour [webmasterworld.com].
You are better off in the long run to add a redirect, but the robots rule is a good thing to start off with.
