Put me in that group.

Whilst it would be nice to give author's that little SEO (SEM?) boost, I 
think the overhead of checking links is too much at the moment. It's not 
just at time of publishing, people change domains, change career, legitimate 
sites become spam sites etc. evolt articles are around for a long time.

It's not like we're removing the link, if you've read an article and are 
interested in finding out more about the author it's all there, loss of a 
little SEM boost shouldn't deter an author from contributing.

+1 on adding nofollow
