You do not throw pagerank into a black hole by duplicating links. Nofollow links throw pagerank into a black hole. Google seems to ignore duplicate links altogether. Its like they aren't in the page at all as far as google is concerned. They don't pass pagerank, they don't throw it away, its like the link doesn't exist to Googlebot. It has no effect on pagerank and it has no anchor text effect.
