From time to time, I get natural links from decent pages. But they're nofollowed, despite being actual, honest-to-goodness reference links of the sort that Google should be paying attention to.
How about, in addition to letting us report spam in their index, Google lets us report abuse of the nofollow tag?
Oh, and I'm not talking about some user-edited page like Wikipedia. I'm talking about a great page of professionally-written content that Google seems to think is worthy of a high position in the SERPs.
If it's worth putting on the 1st page of G, isn't it worth following the links?
