What is the 'sexisgood' parameter for?

In the Perl Monks User Search node (including "my own"), if I change any option and press the Search button, I get an URL containing the sexisgood=Search parameter assignment, which is blocked by our squid. Now this is annoying, and I'm about to ask the admins to unblock it, but still I wonder what it is really for, since removing it manually doesn't seem to do any harm...

    Did you try viewing the source of the search page? 'sexisgood' is the name of the submit button.

    We're not surrounded, we're in a target-rich environment!

      I guess those who go around reading the source to web pages need to be reminded?

      90% of every Perl application is already written.

    'sexisgood=Search' is misplaced in that URL, it should be a short entry in the poetry section.
