I simplify the ticket to more easily understandable « Remove bogus parameter "name" and display actual entity name in edit search » :
Putting garbage in the parameter works, blanking it works too (same as removing it completely now).
So this unused and the search form should simply
Only entity ID should be left in the URL (and even better MBID : MBS-4897).
I keep below description for background information.
The URL for the edit search contains the bogus parameter "name".
This parameter is (hopefully) not used for the request, the ID is there for that.
When we replace the "name" parameter's value with any dummy string, the result is not changed but the display becomes wrong.
NEW ! It can be used for insulting purpose ! (or phishing)
Edits on RG "LOL" by editor TROUDUC (is actually getting results of an RG not called "LOL" by the serious editor ModBot).

- repeated &conditions.0.=
- once only &auto_edit_filter=&field=Please+choose+a+condition
- and other empty parameters maybe specific to other criteria types
Removing at least "name" parameter would be 1. nice for our URL fanciness 2. nice for scripting MB without having to display LOL texts.
Removing the other empty/bogus parameters could be 1. even more fancy.
SECONDARY BUG (updated 2012-11-02)
I was in this page (Salyu).
I wanted the same search with another artist so I typed :
sherbets then ENTER KEY (too quickly because I'm faster than sound).
I ended up on this page (Salyu as sherbets) ☜ I didn't trick the URL (this time), it's true, I swear, try ut !
