They should be tagged index,nofollow (if you don't specify an action).

FP and RC are index,follow.

This means a search engine can find and index ALL pages.

They are allowed and it doesnt make much sense giving them "follow" on 
every page, this just makes lots of traffic and load on your server by 
triggering all sorts of nonsense (as far as bots are concerned).

Why would you want to?
