"Nofollow" links in blog tag module OR canonicalize links on blog tag pages

It would be great if we could "nofollow" blog tag links in the tag module (aka the Posts By Category list) or at least indicate that the "canonical" content is the actual blogs -- not the duplicate content that is displayed on the blog tag pages. This seems like a best practice that should be built in.

We have run into the issue of our blog tag pages outranking our blogs, even getting to the 1st page of search results. The blog tag pages copy the meta description from the actual blog, showing up something like this:

driver Retention | Blog
hni.com/blog/?Tag=driver+Retention
Posts with driver Retention on Go ahead - steal some ideas from the HNI blog.

...not exactly the click-inspiring, eye catching headlines we try to promote on our blog!
