I've installed the ChromiEdit plus plugin for Firefox which clearly identifies any NO FOLLOW links by putting a big honkin' box around it. I just updated my website and I'm cruising this high PR forum which matches my niche, but I notice they only have NO FOLLOW links. What the hell, I post my website link with a description. 12 minutes later I'm flailing away on Google, checking to see my if any of my social bookmarks got indexed. I then spot my link from that high PR forum on Google! (I told ya it had a high PR!) I went back and checked the source code from the forum posting. Yup, there's clearly a NO FOLLOW tag snuggled up next to my URL. What the hell is going on? I thought NO FOLLOW meant nada. Was it because Google hadn't found that page elsewhere, it just went "what the hell"? Most of my site isn't indexed yet, but this page now IS. Did Google basically find it, but doesn't value it as a link for me from this site?
