Hi Walter. I believe this is so that b2evolution will be able to find the right post from any given inbound link. Given that there are many configurations to URLs, and that it is easy to imagine matching almost all of bits of URLs there must always be something that is totally unique. So the post ID is (of course) unique, but if your URLs go by post title then ... well ... uniqueness is needed yah?
Will it work for you to identify what you are "about"ing? "About Blog", "About Life", "About About Pages"?
