Okey give me ur ideas & comments.
And if it was true, what idiot with a higher PR would ever link to them? They would just be dragged down. So if it was true, they would only get links from PR 4 and stay PR 4 forever because as soon as they became PR 5, they instantly be dragged down by all those PR 4 sites linking to them. It's just idiotic.
The bad side of linking out too much to lower PR sites in that it will over time lower your PR on your links pages and some people may be less reluctant to link to you because they think they are not getting an equitable swap.
"We understand your position about not linking to lower PR sites.We have a very similar philosophy for each of the twelve PR7 sites and for the nine PR8 sites we operate. We never agree to link those sites to a site that is lower than PR6. Good luck in your quest."
snotty, yes. A tad mean even, but maybe it would brighten up a dim bulb in the noggin for someone.

What We Talk About When We Talk About PageRank
Discussing the Value (or Not) of PageRank
For those of you without access to supporters, here are some key questions to consider:
- If the Gtb display is indeed flawed, does it make sense to depend on it for making business decisions (from acquiring links to purchasing websites), and does this call for other metrics?
- Can the quantity of total inbounds from unique websites, regardless of PR, play a significant role in acquiring better ranking?
- Can the number of anchors, regardless of PR of the originating page, play a more significant role than PR for acquiring better ranking?
