I don't think it is "NOFOLLOW", when I checked the source code of a published article, there is no "NOFOLLOW" in the tag.
Edit: It is no follow now

Thanks very much for posting this thread! We've been having troubles with eZA, but our troubles are nowhere near the scale of yours.
I'm glad that our guys decided to create multiple eZA accounts; that may limit the damage if eZA explodes on us.
Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Good you're outta issues yet. sadly and it's its weird but we did had multiple EZA accounts 2 years ago (around 15) and they spotted them (some for same IP, some for same address and blah blah) and suspended all. Then after a long and stretched communication, they suggested us to merge all 15 accounts in one account.
and NOW, they contradict their own sick rules.
I'm going to create a competitor for EZA lol.. am serious
You really don't know what is going to happen with the article directories. Articlebase is nofollow and others may decide to add the tag. It really isn't too difficult to tell which articles are submitted by SEO companies and which by businesses.
Articlealley is nofollow now.. a1articles is no-follow now.. I know these guys personally and often taunt out of fun But after a certain achievement (in terms of PR, reputation, authority), most of the directories go no-follow.
Buzzle removes the article immediately as soon as their system finds the copyof same article. It happens most of the time. But we had some of the articles live for more than a year. They don't delete articles with good rating. If you have 1 or two comments on your buzzle article, there are no chances of deletion.
Tell them, and your clients that you now own the articles.
