    I see that Facebook is now an ever-present member. How does that work?

    Tom can weigh in with more authority, but I suspect it's basically like the Yahoo or Google spiders that crawl the site. I know at least I have linked my Facebook account in, so I would guess the presence you're seeing is something automated from the FB servers, watching for content over here.

    Correct. It's also part of the authentication process to ensure that the site using the Facebook connect is a valid site.

    Thanks, guys! It kind of creeps me out to see it in the line of human users, but I'll get used to it. This is NOT an official complaint. You don't need to fix anything.

    I can turn that off easily enough, and may just do that. However, it's also a reminder to everyone that we do encourage the bots to crawl the site. ;)
