I've just installed one of the many dofollow plugins that are available, so that I can reward those of you who have spent time contributing your thoughts and opinions here. I've never been totally against nofollow. I approve of things that discourage spammers from clogging up our spaces and forcing us to waste our time. On the other hand, I don't approve of throwing out the baby with the bathwater, so I don't think nofollow should be used across the board, any more than I think dofollow should be used across the board.
I looked at the options and decided to go with a plugin that is configurable so that frequent commenters can be rewarded for the giving of their time. I think that's a good compromise, and is also fair in just a real world kind of way. So for those of you who haven't just dropped a link in a drive-by, you'll probably see a little extra link love coming your way.
I probably should have done this long ago, but better late than never, I guess. 🙂
