Well, Google’s nofollow attribute is one way of putting off comment-spammers but it won’t stop them. They’ll continue to spam in case they come across a site that doesn’t support the new attribute.
I may look at adding rel=”nofollow” to links here, but it’d be handy to have a list of “safe” URLs that are safe to link to. Perhaps a WP plugin, backend interface and db table?
In other news, the number of spams getting through to the moderation queue has dwindled down to zero (besides the edgesaver one of course!) so it’s not a problem here right now.
