Matt Cutts discussing various sorts of (!tasty) link condoms, Google’s death penalty on rel-nofollow, err ... Google’s no-longer-existent support of links to crap (?) implemented with client sided scriping or microformats ... read the source for yourself you lazy search marketer ;)

Matt Cutts on whether links related to sponsored stuff should get nofollowed:"I asked the author whether they knew about this, he’s a respected journalist I trust."Oh, how I love the scalability of this method... If Matt Cutts trusts you personally, than it’s OK.

@lisamay it’s actually a very old term for nofollow links. Was coined when it first came out. I believe by @oilman

I love how nofollow now causes link juice to evaporate. Maybe people will stop using nofollow and make all their links dofollow or not link at all.

I like how easy Google can manipulate our everyday behavior by changing the algorithms.

I also hate nofollow. Finally, now many will drop the nofollow. It makes your PR evaporate. OK so much for rank sculpting. If you link to a site make it dofollow.
