    Hello fellow users.
    It came to my attention to posting any link into the Shapeways description always ends in the link being changed to have a rel=nofollow tag on it.
    I understand Shapeways wants to protect it's SEO, but for verified and long term users i thought it might have been helpful. After all, for those who have websites, we all link to shapeways and it's in our common interest to trust our websites.
    Any thoughts on that ? Did you experience the same thing ?

    Best regards

    Unless things have changed, you also cannot link to a competitors website in a message either.
