One of my favorite forums, recently went from do-follow to no-follow.....and this made me quite upset. I mean prior to them notifying members of the change, I was not even aware that the forum was a do-follow forum, but upon finding out that the forum was orginally do-follow, and that they recently changed it to no-follow, as a member really ticked me off!
I mean come on now, whoever came up with the idea of no-follow in the first place should be shot! I mean, realistically, do forum owners really believe that by simply going no-follow, that that will stop the spam!
No it will not stop the spam, spam is relentless and whether a forum is do-follow or no-follow spammers don't really care, they are still going to do what they do best and spam your forum, why take something away from your valued members, in an attempt to stop something which is impossible to stop. It just doesnt make sense to me, moderators are what stop spam, not a no-follow attribute.
