    Well, this is actually a good thing. Wikipedia does the same to combat spamlinks. While it may probably not have any effect on the quantity of spamlinks, those links will at least not gain any link-love in Google due to the rel=”nofollow”.

    Espen, it is a good think for services to do this and also to do with user comments, because as you said it cuts the flow to spamlinks. Hutch was talking about was when he copied them into blog posts, which is when the link is being vouched for, and thus should have a rel=”do-follow” tag.
