It would seem that rel=nofollow has been implemented by default in WP 1.5, so I’ll be posting instructions on how to remove this for those who aren’t interested. But of all the responses I’ve read to this new attribute, I like Ryan’s the best:
Hot stove. Hot stove. Don’t touch.
But then, I also liked what Craig had to say about nofollow. If you haven’t read Craig’s weblog before, I would suggest you spend some time there. He’s a kick-in-the-butt Canadian with a sense of humor, and that’s a goodly combination.
