In honor of you, I have named the post "grey".
Digg, yes, but that is for another discussion.
Yes, you are right.
Even, my personal blog on wordpress have giving me now a grey PageRank which was PR 2 earlier on.
But I don't think, its like Banned in Google or something like having grey shed in search engine. Its still in rankings. You can search it by my name - "amit verma" in Google. Its on Page 1.
amit2110 [dot] wordpress [dot] com
Even if you can see the page in which we are posting our views, having a grey PR.
Well, from my view, it will take time to understand it. It might be that PR toolbar is not working properly. Even, it has happened many times earlier too from Google.
Lets wait and watch Guys.
Grey Tool Bar
It simply means the page is dead.
All and only our new pages posted last week have a grey PR or 'no PR infomration available'. I think they will simply remain like this until the next PR update.
Wow looks like your right..

I thought it was just unindexed pages...
Going to stick till next update.. nasty..
In my one of site whose index page is having PR 6 and few pages which has earlier PR 5 is now gray. I found by my disclaimer page as gray.
I understand that Google has made supplementary / duplicate content pages as gray. Gray means they cannot pass any page rank. How ever they are in SERP and also in Cached
My personal take is that pages which are less relevant and probably are not good enough to pass relevancy have been marked gray.
You could be into something, I have noticed that the company profile pages in my directory that are being put on new category pages are not ranking as well as they should, the only thing that is holding them up is content and trustrank, this could make it so that SEO takes even longer to kick in, if this is right it is not good news for my blog that I am about to launch:
It might mean that it will take 3 months before my posts start to rank properly, unless of course they attract external links.
