Nofollow for Journals

One of the hidden features of our latest update is support for the rel="nofollow"convention for links in comments.  Since Journals automagicallymakes anything in a comment that looks like a link clickable, this willhopefully help discourage link spamfrom getting started.  (Nofollow tells engines such as Google andTechnorati that the link itself wasn't created or endorsed by theauthor of the page and so the link doesn't mean any additional weightshould be given to the link's target.  It's not the best name forthe concept, but why quibble?)
