Why are some links nofollow and others not so on this site?

    I found this website, clearly being used by commenters to build backlinks. I use an SEO plugin for Firefox which strikes-through rel=nofollow links, and when I pull up the site I notice that some links in the comments section are nofollow and others aren't. It doesn't appear to be related to whether the link is the commenter's username vs. a link inside the comment itself, and I don't notice any special code when using the "Inspect Element" feature of Firefox. Any ideas?

    Tried posting the link twice, but I'm too new to the forums. PM me if you've been around awhile, I'll send you the link and you can post it in a reply here.

    May be registered users get do-follow and visitors get no-follow links in comments. PM me the link, would like to have a look too.

    BTW if any mods are reading this, I'm sorry for bending the house rules by posting a link, but in fairness it's not a link to a site I run, I'm not advocating or trying to promote it in any way, and I'm posting something which (I hope) contributes to an ongoing discussion of link building. I do want to be a good citizen of BHW. :)
