When you sign up to webmaster tools you have to prove you have control
of the website. To do this you are asked to create a URL something
like http://inodes.org/12akgj9r209slks.html

ie a URL with a token. Basically a fairly similar process to the
confirmation email most websites or mailing lists use to prove you own
an email address.

Of course it's totally benign and you can remove it once you have gone
through the verification process.

But really I don't know why I'm even replying to this crazy thread.
