Threshold for nofollow links is a HubberScore of 85

    A few weeks ago, my account dropped below 75...because I was gone for a month or so, and no activity caused the drop.  Well I came back from a few trips, got my account up to 79, but all of my links are still no follow.  This is actually happening to my friend right now too.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Taylor

    Really, when did that happen? And what for?

      It was introduced a little over a month ago in order to limit SPAMMY backlinks or primarily promotional activities. 
      Having links follow rather than nofollow is only important for building backlinks and has no impact on a readers ability to follow a link.

    Wow.  So my level of performance is just barely enough to be considered "follow" worthy. 

    Wow.

      That seems to be it, PS. They are devising algorithms to deal with spammers that catch genuine hubbers in the net. Consider yourself "collateral damage".

      Apparently I am no longer follow-worthy as my score fell 9 points to an 83. It feels rather like I'm being told I'm "spammy."  Of course with only 20 hubs written the the last year (and only 10 of those featured because I haven't the time for endless tweaking) I would venture to say I'm the worst spammer ever. Guess that makes me a double failure. Or something. All I know is that it is incredibly demoralizing, especially given how hard I worked on the hubs I have and given the fact that they are not, in fact, even the slightest bit spammy.

    I specialize in .gov and other extremely reputable links. Associate with class and one is perceived as class. If HP ever tells Google to disregard those links on my hubs, I will cry.
