I made it mainly since getting a lot of spammers lately.
And  did not want all links nofollow just links in signatures.

A good modification, I have not had so many problems with spambots but I do see the increase in their attacks and I stay tuned to avoid it.

Why only signatures?

On my site, all links are in "nofollow". Whether it's a message or a signature.
It's much more careful!

It's also actually not good for you to nofollow every single outgoing link. It tells Google you don't trust anyone and you actually get downmarked for it.
Please don’t PM me for paid work, I’m not for hire, and even if I was, I doubt you could afford me.

could it be permission based?
for example I have a mod so that no new members can use signatures to help prevent spam
i'd like to further that by using this for the next tier or two of the post based groups, so that they can use signatures but their links will be no follow until I'm sure they aren't miscreants :p

Nice mod, as for links in posts google introduced rel="ugc" recently. I wonder if it will be used at all.

No, not easily.

ok thank you though :)
I may still end up using this as signatures are really meant more for the users than for search engines.....
