Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

The links to from post authors' names/avatars to their profile pages on review posts (and responses to review posts), such as on https://wordpress.org/support/topic/so-it-broke-my-site-and-im-mad-af/, have a nofollow attribute. This should be removed.

Also applies to the 'Last reply from' sidebar link.

Support Forums: turn off nofollow for topic and reply author links on the forums. Those always link to an internal wordpress.org support profile URL, they are not user input URLs. Fixes #4287
