Default Debug whut?

Okay, so it seems no matter where I go here, at the bottom of every page, this box appears, entitled "vBulletin 3.7.2 Debug Information". It's full of all kinds of... well, random data that I imagine would be part of the site's coding.

There is an X in the corner, but even when I close the box, it reappears when I visit a new page. So... is this a setting I can edit or some kind of forum bug or what?

I took a screenshot of it and put it on my photobucket here, if that helps any. It goes off the page, so I couldn't get a full picture, but...

Also, would this go in forum help or forum discussion?

AIM, IE7 and Windows Live Messenger. I can't say I approve of your choice in browsers or im apps!

On the actual topic, somehow I seriously doubt it's unintentional. It was probably a quick reference for Butterfree while she was setting up. It will probably removed eventually, and I can't imagine it's causing more than minor annoyance on your part.

They all work fine for me. :P Besides, most of my friends use either AIM or MSN, so having a messenger that no one else I know does won't do me any good. :P

Yeah, its not really causing any problems, I was just wondering what exactly it was.

It's "debug mode", a developer option in vBulletin that makes it easier to figure out what's wrong if you're making hacks. I actually turned it off before opening the forums, but then I turned it back on to see what was wrong with the rules and forgot to turn it off again.

Actually debug mode is the most useful in the Admin CP, as a lot of hack options only become available when in debug mode. At the old forums I had a hack that turned debug mode on in the Admin CP but off everywhere else.

I don't mean to derail the topic, but I feel obligated to say that no matter what awful commercial programs you use, there will always be better open source alternatives.
