Anti-nofollow plugins do not work in WP v2.7.1

I want to disable "nofollow" in my comments, because spam filtering makes it unnecessary. However, I have tried a number of plugins including Nofollow-free, DoFollow and Lucia's Linky Love, and none of them have any effect. I have tried replacing my theme (Atahualpa v3.3.3) with the default Kubrick-based one, and the nofollow still appears.

There should be an option to disable this, or else it should be disabled by default. Nofollow belongs to the era before spam filtering and is not necessary on either spam-filtered or moderated blogs.

  • Keywords dev-feedback 2nd-opinion added; nofollow plugins comments removed
  • Milestone changed from Unassigned to Future Release

Looking at the source code, I see no reason a decent plugin couldnt remove the nofollows, Its all added by filters.

-1 to removing it, +1 for complaining to plugin authors to get it updated for the latest version.
