Pinned topic x param in the form data

‏2012-11-30T14:50:58Z |
In every request form data there's an 'x' param with value between 0 and 1 (ie. x:0.775084022898227).
It's different for every request.
Does anyone know what is it used for and can it be removed?

Thanks.

    Not sure where you're seeing this, but it's fairly common to add a random number when submitting form data to prevent people from accidentally re-submitting.

    As a general rule, you shouldn't remove or change things you don't fully understand, it may cause bugs that are hard to track down.

    Seems it is set by the worklight to prevent caching on API calls.
    I was just curious if it is used for something else.
