Comment (by rob1n):


 Whether or not this makes it into the core, patching your core files makes
 upgrading less feasible and that plugin takes care of it all.

 I am +1 on removing nofollow. What has it done? Hardly anything that I can
 see. Comment spam has if anything, by Akismet's own graphs, increased
 multiple times over. If people wanted to use nofollow, I'm sure someone
 could come up with a plugin to add rel="nofollow", but I don't think
 nofollow should be in the core.
