comment Nofollow: a good thing for SEO or not?
From what you've said, yes, but if you can provide a bit more info about what your users are posting then perhaps we can advise further.

comment Nofollow: a good thing for SEO or not?
It depends a bit what you mean by the links being 'sent by your users' though. If these links appear on your site automatically in content created by your users (e.g. like links in questions or comments posted on this site would), then you would use nofollow on these links, as they are untrusted, which fits into point 2 of John's answer.

comment What to use for rapid PageSpeed analysis — Google Insights or Chrome extension?
For that URL I get 76 from the extension, 73 online. Might you be logged in to the site and seeing slightly different content to the tool?

Could you provide the URL that is giving such a different score between the two tools?

comment CSS: single directive generic class vs. style-attribute on element
Isn't the problem you've posed just another reason to use semantic class names though? You're trying to decide between two bad options - instead you want a semantic class that represents what's in that <p>. It might seem like overkill now, but in 6 months time when you decide you also want that text italicised and in a different font, your site is easier to update.

comment Is there a way I can redirect search engine traffic by U.S. State or Zip Code?
Are you auto-detecting the state based on IP, or just prompting them? I'd suggest investigating the former if you're not, if it works in most cases it should help. Tricky problem though.

comment SEO: Using the same image on separate webpages with different 'alt' tags.
Micro-optimization of your image filenames at the expensive of site load speed (and thus user experience) seems like a bad idea to me.

comment How to access a website hosted on a shared server (and IP), when its domain is not working?
What are you actually trying to do? Figure out how to keep accessing a site where you know the domain will expire? You seem to be working under the assumption that all websites have a secret 'raw URL address' but this is not the case.

comment Should I add a trailing slash to my canonical link or not?
I think the homepage is a special case here. Chrome and Firefox may hide the trailing slash from the URL (in the same way that they hide the http://) but it is still there. If you visit http://example.com, the request URI the browser will send to the server is for /.

I think you're missing the initial / on the order path, so it should be RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/order/$
