    When I was looking at the thread ( - a friendly Linux forum) I noticed that the link to was a do-follow one which may not be bad for trusted websites such as the one I already mentioned but could be a big issue if someone decides to post a spam link as Google will see this forum as spammy if it does do-follow links to spammy websites.

    I recommend that you set all external links to no-follow to avoid any issues.

    I hope you found this thread useful.
