One of the mos popular tech blogs on the internet, mashable.com has it’s Page Rank down to ZERO. What happened? People speculated that most probably they have been penalized by Google. :oh:
As of now, we really don’t know yet but I have saw some have been talking about it. Other pages of Mashable still has its Page Rank, except for their home page, mashable.com

(the page rank value is 0 from 10 possible points)
It must have been sad having a PR back to zero, but a popular site like Mashable, it may not have that bad effect. For people who are aware of Mashable, they will remember to visit the tech blog, but for those who are not and just refer to Google’s result, well, it may really be a bad effect for Mashable. I also came across some site saying that 20 percent of Mashable’s traffic is from Google search results. Anyhow, Mashable is probably not that bothered since they can easily acquire the page rank bank on the next updated.
