What does clicking the "poke atlassian" link do?

I noticed the new "poke atlassian" link on questions I have asked, but I don't find any explanation of what it does in the FAQ and I'm hesitant to go and press it since I'm not quite sure what the consequences are, but gosh it's so tempting to click it, kind of like the Big Red Button:

Can someone shed some light on what "poking atlassian" does?

Thanks!

Jim

I've never made it do anything useful, although only tried it twice. I think it might be like the "close doors" button in a lift (elevator). Makes you feel a bit better, but ultimately it's not wired in.

I used it once. Behavior: like an observer pattern with zero listeners.

It invites Atlassian team into the loop. Useful when you feel like you need the Atlassian opinion rather than the other active users who are not giving you the "official" word.

I used it once or twice and it was really helpful in cases you really need Atlassian's response.

It sends us a note in our activity stream as an escalation which Answers administrators can see. I was quite good at monitoring it in the beginning, and have slipped lately...
