I delete many issues and forum messages made by spammer every day at Adding "rel=nofollow" to user-generated content (untrusted content) may prevent spammers from abusing Redmine. Google recommends using "nofollow" in order to prevent comment spam.

GitHub and GitLab add "nofollow" to external links.
