Don't nofollow links in admin comments

Links in admin comments shouldn't have rel=nofollow.
Admin comments are not user-generated content, and the site owner (admin) is vouching for the links just like when they link from the post itself.
Therefore, this usage of nofollow is incorrect.
Also, if I go and edit a comment and remove nofollow from a link, WP adds it back. It shouldn't do that either.
Note that in the unlikely event of wanting a link in a comment to be nofollowed, this could still be done manually.
