Bad idea. I'd never guess that +/- means ascending/descending. I'd think 
"add/remove this column". Why not little up/down arrow gifs?

I'd probably send the querystring via GET, that way it's appended to the 
URL and can be easily manipulated in the code that generates your links, 
rather than needing hidden form values.
