Description

On sites with no blogs, the order/ orderby params can cause soft 404's (404 template returned with 200 status code).

For example:
https://wordpress.org/?order=asc
https://wordpress.org/?orderby=example
https://wordpress.org/five-for-the-future/?order=asc
https://wordpress.org/support/?order=asc
https://developer.wordpress.org/?order=asc

Other examples no doubt exist.

These should all return the correct HTTP status code.
