Announcement: I now use the nofollow attribute for one specific purpose

I’ve been inspired by this insightful post* from Nicholas Carr to use the “nofollow attribute” when linking to sites I’d prefer not to reward with link love. I really enjoy the way the post displays his deep understanding of how incoming links play a role in web status. I especially like how he is such a student of the nuances of something he declared dead last year.
