linking to pr0 pages internally question

I've got a situation on one of my sites where some very deep pages on the site have recently gone from PR1-2 to PR0.

I'm worried that this cancer may spread to the whole site, as I am linking from higher PR pages (same site) to those newly PR0 pages.

- Will this cause higher PR pages on the same site to drop if they are linking to the PR0?
- Or is this likely a precursor to the whole site going PR0?

btw, the PR0 pages are image pages, all the pages have very similar text/links (sitewide header/footer) but a different image. There are a lot of links on each page, but they are all internal except for a few. Perhaps this is confusing Google.

If anybody can offer their opinion it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

looks like those pages which dropped to PR0 are "natural" PR0 pages as they already had a relatively low PR before the drop.

PR0 penalty pages normally take some drastic spamming and link farming with exteranl PR0 pages as far as I can oversee.

Thanks vitaplease, I guess simultaneously browsing through all these PR0 posts and noticing the change on my site freaked me out for a moment. I hope you are right.
