I want to report that if we changed anything in querystrings,they are not handled well in the site's code.
i.e. I have this thread:
it consists of 2 pages,now if I changed the PageIndex to 3 you will notice that validation on PageIndex isn't handled to display Page 2 (since it's the last page and there is no page 3) at all.
see for your self.
This is one of the validations issues and I know that this one isn't a very big issue (showstopper) but it's important to be handled that's all,and so other validations,who knows may be there are cases that are critical not like this one.
I didn't check on whole site but it's important to check on the validation of every page that uses querystring by the development team,which I hope Terri will report this to them.

Thanks for the report.
Rather than the reported problem being "The site needs more validation", would you agree that what you are suggesting is "Attempting to navigate to a page greater than the max should bring you to the last page in the thread"?

Thanks Terri for your reply.

You would be correct if I'm reporting about that specific issue only but I'm not,actually I mentioned that issue just as an example on how I can make changes on any querystrings though the value may not be valid at all,I didn't check on all urls of the site
(because it's not possible),that's why I said that the site needs more validation so maybe the development team can recheck on pages that may have a possibility to cause that kind of issue (effecting on the page behavior by manipulating querystrings)..
