rel=tag implies rel=nofollow
I was just thinking. Having my own tagspace, you could say, that I'm SPAMming Google and you could say the same about Technorati. This is why you find Technorati climbing the Google ranks (and maybe me too, not likely). This is a problem. The authority link structure is being broken by rel=tag links. As such, rel=tag should, no MUST be treated as a superset of rel=nofollow. We should not be giving authority thru folksonomy tagspaces. MHO.
