This topic has been covered well in the forums over the last couple-a years, but I don't see any threads on it as of late, especially relating to BigDaddy.

So, I'd like to bring this back to the table for discussion.
I'm under the assumption Google has tackled blog COMMENT link spam, and has now figured out how to pretty much nullify the effectiveness of such.
What I'm interested in is your thoughts on how Google treats links inside of actual blog posts made by legit bloggers who decide they should link to a site because it's topically relevant to the post itself.
How do you think Google defines a legitimate blog?
Are links from legitimage blog posts counted the same way a link from a "authority" site of the same caliber (PR) would be?
Are there any blog formats (ie-blogger, typepad, livejournal, etc) where we know for sure that ALL links within that system are nullified?
