 should there be a nofollow in quicklinks

Hi

It seems to me that there should be a rel="nofollow" as part of the quicklinks link so that genuine search engines, who only look at the code and not the visible page, etc don't follow the link.

Should I include it?

A quick search here for "Search engines" find these post you may find interesting:

Obviously there are robots and there are robots. It is safe to assume that bots like Google, Yahoo or bing are "well behaved" and may follow the link to the honey pot but will not harvest any email addresses.

honey pots include:

<meta name="robots" content="noarchive">
<meta name="robots" content="noindex">

Adding to the quickLink won't heart.
