It was one of the very first plugins I enabled when I launched this blog. We have the ability to control and eliminate spam, therefore I saw and still see no reason why outgoing links are assigned with the “nofollow” tag.
Yes, it is a time consuming process to get rid of all the spam and delete spammy link-to URLs. Up to this point it is worth the time.
So again, when you comment on my blog I’m going to follow; provided your comment is in “good shape.”
That’s the way it should be. My 2 cents anyway.
