Trac seems to think I'm a spambot...?

Off the top of my head:
What email addresses are attached to the spamming trac accounts? Is there
any pattern to them?
More importantly, are external links nofollow'd  to reduce spam
incentive? Doesn't appear so  if you view html source and search for
"reddit thread". There's a whole bunch of material when I search for "trac
nofollow", so maybe that's the answer.
