     9And yes, I see that another method has already been implemented, that of treating ?replytocom pages as non-public pages via a meta tag. At this point, Occam's Razor comes into play:

     11As a meta tag:
     12* Robots can still index the pages
     13* An extra filter must be processed by WordPress
     14
     15As a rel="nofollow":
     16* No extra processing (it's just a tiny HTML attribute; no PHP logic required)
     17* Robots don't load the ?replytocom pages at all
     18
     19I'm not sure why a non-rel="nofollow" solution would ever be mentioned here; it solves the issue with zero overhead.
