    PR can be faked, and G may drop the PR to 0 if the site is replaced by an empty domain sales page/placeholder.

    The supposed PR's on a lot of auction sites (and yeah TDNAM I'm looking @ you...among others) are often fake.

    If you bought an expired, it had pr and you built a site on it and now the pr has dropped - some of the original links have probably been pulled.

    Does a change in domain ownership impact PR?

    looks that you are right but 4 of them with wp autoblogs didn't get downgraded. I just check some other new domains I have and they went up
    lol I just don't get it

    Nope, just links and any penalty G may give.
