Toolbar PR piskie msg:3325123 1:28 am on Apr 29, 2007 (gmt 0) Could somebody please explain the current interpretation of "Toolbar" status: 1) PR0 (White) 2) n/a (Grey)

Depends a bit on which browser or toolbar you use.
grey, when it is used, usually means not in the index at all - so you see it for new pages. Once upon a time, some used it for banned pages too - but I'm not so sure any still do that.
white means in the index, but pr=0. But if that bar does not use grey, it may mean not in the index at all.
Whatever system they use, the information is always at least three months out of date, so I'd not worry.

I agree with Quadrille. The difference between White PR bar is that, the page or a site is already been indexed but either the PR is 0 or it hasn't been given a PR yet. While the Grey PR bar means that site is not in index (because not yet found)or the site is banned.
