Would like to add to the parallel follow/nofollow discussion that if I was Google I wouldn't trust webmasters what to follow and not follow, apart maybe from blog and forum comment links.
Also I've heard the argument that in some very specialized niches Wikipedia links do count, otherwise those sites would never rank and the person I was talking to is 100% certain they do count.
So I have yet to see such a niche, the ones he mentions don't have any commercial interest whatsoever but he has made me reconsider what Google does with the nofollow attribute on links.
Guess is not the right thread but felt it is relevant to the above discussion :)
