I will follow you
Follow you wherever you may go
There isn’t an ocean too deep
A mountain so high it can keep me away
I must follow you

What it does do is remove some of the incentive for readers to contribute to your site by commenting on your posts.
What’s equally great, is thathas listed all the blogs that now have removed the NoFollow feature.
Like Leigh, I have imposed some restrictions before the NoFollow provision is removed. However, what’s great is that the more you comment on these DoFollow blogs, once you hit the required minimum posts, the restriction is removed, and you will benefit by having more backlinks to your blogs!

I’m hoping that since I’ve also installed CommentLuv and changed these attributes on my blogs, that I’ll see my statistics increase.
