:)))) Interesting difference in view points on same "situation". I guess it really matters how prospective changes if you look at it as link buyer versus link seller. By the way I think both are valid points, but this discussion really brings to light that both link buyers and sellers have to work thinks out in advance.
For the record, I don't have no follow on any of my outbound links, however I value inbound links even if they have no follow on them - what I mean is that I value traffic they bring. There is a reference to my site from wikipedia, and although it has no follow on the link, it brings a lot of traffic and I sure like it (once traffic is there it's on me to covert it ;) ...)
Also for the record ( :) ) , I don't think we as webmasters should be doing 'link type discovery' for the SEs.
However, current 'rules' being as they are, and since we can't change them, we should adapt - hey we can charge more for the same link ;)
