When will there be a Site Updates posting about the new "Like" button?

So, since yesterday, I think, there's been a new little icon on every forum topic, as shown in the attached image (or just look up above this text).  What's the deal?  What are we supposed to do with this, especially those of us who do not have, and do not ever want, a Facebook account?

Shouldn't the author of this new feature have written up a forum topic for Site Updates?  That's why the forum was created, wasn't it?  If it doesn't get used, then you'll just get more and more of these questions from me, and you don't want that, do you?

Above the text of this forum I do not see any "Like" button, instead I see a blue bar that says "Access Denied!"

Could you do a screen capture?  That's weird, but it might actually indicate something.

Here it is:

 I get the same sort of thing at work, where facebook is blocked. Except mine just looks like a horrible bug.

Yeah, that stinks ... mine isn't as prominent.

Thanks!  And RMS got it right.  I wonder if I'bles new Staff member can cool up a cool little JS fragment to test for that on the client side, and avoid putting up the banner at all.  To me, that "Access Denied" banner could be pretty misleading, and certainly detracts from the site.

And I've just said so.
Awesome!!!! Thanks for doing that!!!
Your welcome. Yeah, that would be cool if he could
Sure, here it is:
