I cleaned up this and a bunch of other places where this was happening today.

Essentially I was being a bit to greedy with my route matching, I went through the routes and changed it so when we expect a number we will only match to a number.

So, for example we had a few routes like so:

[Route(@"{sitename}/qte/{savedQueryId}/{slug?}", RoutePriority.Low)]

Which I rewrote to:

[Route(@"{sitename}/qte/{savedQueryId:\d+}/{slug?}", RoutePriority.Low)]

Additionally I sprinkled a few PageNotFounds in some strategic places.
