JSPWiki should support the Google-introduced way of preventing comment spam via tagging all external references with rel="nofollow".  At least the comment form should do this.

For more information, check [http://www.google.com/googleblog/2005/01/preventing-comment-spam.html].

;: I saw this the other day.  The easy fix it to emit the tag attributes when the href is built.  The downside is Google will never count any link coming from JSPWiki.  A heavy handed fix to slow down a handful of link spammers. -- [Foster Schucker]

Supported since v2.1.140.

It would be nice to make it optional on some(or all) tags. Our internal google search appliance also returns all sorts of Diff and PageInfo pages for whatever you might be searching for. Ideally we could mark the Edit and PageInfo tags with the nofollow, and prevent gsa from indexing them.
