/. is only putting nofollow on links when the comment has been modded down. That isn't QUITE so bad. It protects /. from comment spam. However, it does raise one other problem: bad moderators. If a comment gets modded down, and then gets modded back up because some idiot moderator chose poorly, the comment links STILL have nofollow on them.
