Well, true as far as the commenter and their comments go. I use nofollow to
drain life out of links that serve the aims of /the/ monopoly, as well as
those that lead to duplicate content (e.g. corresponding printer-friendly
and PDF versions).
Regardless, I see more and more sites that begin to realise the moral issues
with nofollow and reverse the out-of-the-box traits of their CMS as to
respect and accredit all links. Also, disdain for backlinks-based engines
is growing, much like the recent wide-spread realisation of proprietary
formats and their damage (c/f Massachusetts versus Office). Subsequently,
you hear more ranks about the current state-of-affair among crawlers,
sponsored search tools, etc. etc.
I am beginning to see more referrals from Scroogle...
