one of the most requested features for authorship is now live! Google News now highlights authors as well!

This is the greatest idea on G+ after hangouts
 
It's great, but it would be greater if it'd adjust for the case where one link to a profile page has rel="author" (but no G+ account at the linked page) while another doesn't (but their profile is linked to a G+ account). This is causing me to 'steal' credit from my own contributors if I comment on their story before Google sees it. Drupal comments have class="submitted" like the main story, and I suspect this is causing the problem. Maybe you could check for a grandparent div with class="comment" or "comments" and ignore everything inside them for authorship purposes.
