Following “nofollow”

A bit of discussion is taking place as to whether search engines are actually following “nofollow.”

When they said they wouldn’t follow the rel=”nofollow” tag, did they really mean they would not follow “nofollow,” follow the policy of not following, not follow the policy of following, or something else entirely? The whole issue leads me to believe that the major engines joining in the original effort may have hired government trained spokepeople (like the guy who puts out this malarkey) to issue the original news.

We may never know exactly what they meant, but I think the blogging community should be following this.
