I've noticed a small square button hiding in the top right corner of my Die2Nite screen. It simply bears a red X and the ominous intonation, "EXIT"

I fear greatly what would transpire if ever I clicked upon it.

Tremble, mortal survivor.
What severe fate awaits all ye who depress the button (What does it do)?

+1 for the freehand arrow. – Ullallulloo Dec 16 '10 at 18:44
Unfortunately it does not allow you to exit your current existence, which would come in handy right about now... – bwarner Dec 16 '10 at 18:48
Having a tag called "buttons" seems unnecessary. Is there a reason you felt you needed to add it? – bwarner Aug 9 '11 at 16:14

If you hover over it, you can see that the URL is:

Therefore, even though I've never pushed that creepy button, I assume that it logs you out.

Again?? sigh AdAware just isn't up to dealing with the Old Gods. – Stuart Pegg Dec 16 '10 at 21:19

@badp: Sorry, "Great Old Ones". Near miss. – Stuart Pegg Dec 16 '10 at 23:15
@Stuart: Yeah, I'm confused about the AdAware bit :) If the image is offensive to you, I can remove it. – badp Dec 16 '10 at 23:36
@badp: Haha! No, not more offensive than expected. AdAware is a tool to stop programs doing silly or malicious things (possibly like clearing your session without your permission). – Stuart Pegg Dec 17 '10 at 8:26

It logs you out of the game and the website.
