I've added code for the Facebook "Like" button to the thread and threadx pages. It may even work!
I'm not sure if it'll stay or not at this point - this was more an exercise to see if I could do it or not, but I don't know that it helps us any more than it would help Facebook (assuming it helps anybody at all).

Sorry, not at this time. Facebook only gives me two choices of text colour, neither of which would work with ALL of our palettes. So I had to just code in a background so it would work with all of them. I have a hunch that Facebook will get a little more flexible after we bombard them with complaints - on the other hand, sometimes they don't listen to complaints at all...
I too dislike this. Facebook is blocked at work, so I get a "you have visited a blocked page" notification for every thread I click on. This hasn't stopped me from visiting during work hours (I work through scheduled breaks and I figure this helps even things out) but it really should.
Ok, so let me see if I understand this. If someone DOES click the like button for this page it will put their facebook name on the big bar of doom? If you click on it, it also puts up the exact webpage address on your facebook?
