I think the PR 6 was doing some artificial link building with several networked domains, and finally paid the price. In other words, they probably didn't deserve that spot anyway. I've seen them fall for half a dozen prime KW's. Meanwhile, I've spent my time developing backlinks and relatively good content - not trying to figure out how to get to number 1. More and more, I believe that spot comes to those who do the work.
