Comment(by boonebgorges):

 Paul (or anyone else) - Do you think there's a good reason why this filter
 should only be applied on the way out? Is there any efficiency to be
 gained by adding nofollow on the way in and then just double checking on
 the way out (so as to catch cases where URLs are turned automatically into
 links, etc)? I ask because it looks like the BP filters are basically
 copies of the WP core filters, except that they don't do the escaping that
 you'd expect when an item is getting written to the database. So for some
 reason whoever wrote these filters (Andy?) turned it into an output-only
 filter. Does that still make sense, or should we do it the WP way?
