Is there a reason that all links are now treated with rel="nofollow"?
This wasn't originally the case.

What about legitimate signature links?
Signature links work just fine, and other forum users can use them to find out more about you.

But as the others indicated, we configured this forum software to use rel="nofollow" on all user-provided links (including signature links) a long time ago.

It's possible that we initially configured it to use rel="nofollow" on message links but not signature links, and then later configured it to use rel="nofollow" on both message links and signature links. But if so, we made the change a long time ago.
