So if for example we are doing our daily promotion and happen accross a great blog or forum of whatever. You feel you can add some value but you check the source and spot the "link condom" do you just pass it up or take a punt that Google does in fact credit your efforts... As things stand I spot the objectionable source code and would rather work with sites that share the love so I move on. Am I missing something here? As a webmaster do I realy benefit if I put rain coats on my outbound links? The logic is lost on me - If google does in fact follow the link then they see the link just like a user would see and as such should determine that it is part of the site.
