Same here in Oregon. I hope it's gone for good, but if that was the case it would seem Google would have not added it to their new toolbar?

Maybe they broke something in the rush to fix the "Adsense redirection" issue?!? ;-)

This is very strange. I received a PR reading on a page as recently as 5 PM Central Time (USA) today, May 27. Yet, this thread was begun a day earlier. I wonder why.

With any luck, G is about to kill it and we won't have to worry about PR anymore. Just wishful thinking really - it will probably be back soon with an update.

dont you think many people would stop using the google bar because of Pagerank? If anything i think google should keep it in their own best interest. People make a fuss over PR therefore google which is a good thing for them.

I think it would lose its uniqueness. Although it has had mass abuses, eg university student newspaper sites, alot actually, in most cases reputable sites are where they belong.

I thank to google that they have saved many webmasters from associating alot of scraper sites with their schemes by warning them with certain types of pagerank 0 or grey barred , as well sites that were in bad neighbourhoods, it has helped alot of people so i dont know why people want it off so much.

I sometimes wonder if the google toolbar is only downloaded by millions of webmasters - wanting to check their PR rating, and other surfers never use it.
I find it pretty handy though - with Yahoo set as home I can still check out google quite conveniently.

It would be nice to see it gone, lately it's nothing more than useles.

but I feel this is no more than either work in progres, or some sort of failure.

Thanks Brett for putting this up on the home page. I was just going to post a duplicate one on the missing PR.

In any case, PR indicator of the toolbar gives precious little information nowadays :(
