Google Removes Page Rank Info From Webmaster Tools!

Even though page rank has been running along side with  Google and Search, replying to a users question, a Google employee has responded that Google Has removed the page rank information from webmaster tools because it wants you to forget about it!
Susan Moskwa (Google Employee) We've been telling people for a long time that they shouldn't focus on PageRank so much; many site owners seem to think it's the most important metric for them to track, which is simply not true. We removed it because we felt it was silly to tell people not to think about it, but then to show them the data, implying that they should look at it.  :-)
