The site you reference also has another high pagerank link on a French site. This case is big enough where it is common knowledge among a few hundred webmasters, and I am aware a couple of different individuals reported the PR 9 link. Yet google has done nothing to address the problem, and the site you reference is probably making a lot of money selling google pagerank to other sites.
I know of another site that is PR 7 and on a webmaster forum they even advertise they are "gaming" the google pagerank.
So cases like this prove that you can make a lot of money through the buying and selling of pagerank. When months pass and thousands of dollars change hands, its too late. The damage is done.
