Is it okay to sell PageRank now?

Selling page rank is dumb
I'm assuming you think buying it is dumb, too.
What if (for example) you have a site with lots of content that doesn't lend itself to linking (e.g., a shopping site) and your pages are not being crawled because your PR is too low? Wouldn't it then make sense?
Let's remember people that PR and Alexa ratings are indicators only and yes they can be influenced through a variety of methods which will in turn affect rankings and the like but in the long term the best way to built a good PR is through relevant recipricol links, good content, well designed internal page links etc...
Selling PR, let's get serious... who cares! ;)
>Selling PR in theory doesn't make all that much sense as the PR of a site is a snapshop at a particular point of time and in the future the PR of a site will change, whether up the scale or down.
So to conform with truth in advertising, perhaps we should refer to this practise as "leasing" page rank.
