I am probably asking a VERY, VERY stupid questiong right now, but nonetheless: when I posted a thread, I noticed that at the bottom, where it lists people who are viewing it, one of the viewers was 'Facebook'. It was not an actual user, just a grey word. What does that mean?

It isn't known. I asked a mod. There's also a grey one called "Google" I think.

It's just a bot parsing/indexing the forum for likes and maybe some other FB-related metadata, nothing to worry about :).

That only happens if you link your Facebook to your account here through the board settings, and the content here is only displayed on Facebook if you click the Facebook "like" logo at the bottom of a thread. If you leave that alone, the two remain separate. :)
