Why can't I sort my custom field in the web UI?

I have a custom Lead field.

In my UI, I'm looking at the table, and I click the column name to sort it.  For some reason, my field's sort buttons are grayed out.

All the rest of the columns can be sorted, but not my custom one.

What's that about?  Can I really not sort by custom fields?  Argh.

Yes, unfortunately we cannot sort on custom fields at this time.  You can export and sort in excel.

This is actually a sad story...

 

But one related question if you don't mind thread necromancy: What is a custom field?

 

For instance, I see through the API that "MarketoSocialGender" has custom field = true, although that is not a field that any user had created. It's part of Marketo's initial field load. How/why is that "custom"?

That seems rather inexplicable.

I clicked "Best Answer", but that phrase really feels like a misnomer in this case.
