Some changes showing, but no changes in positions at this point. Added ones they're showing have been there for a long while, and some that have been eliminated that were showing are not now showing up.
Still, some unaffiliated one way quality links aren't showing and the junk links from pages with scraped content are.
- Number of backlinks shown went up (got more)
- Highest quality not shown
- Toolbar PR no change yet
- Recent change in PR shown in Google Directory! - since when?
- Ahead of the Toolbar PR update?
- Strange values; a lot of 4 and 6 but no 3 and 5?
- Is the PR scale going to change?
- Wait and see if it lasts

I just wanted to add, my site lost 54 of its 88 links!!! RRRRRrrrrr. But I am not seeing a drop in SERP or PR. Also appears to have some junk links now. I am really hoping this is temporary.
Any insight to a new link filtering method google may be testing?

I think you hit the nail on the head with the Gaslighting article. I am seeing PR 0 page where there was a PR4, but I didn't change a thing on this page since the last update. I am seeing high serps for PR 0 pages. I am seeing PR 5 for a page that is not indexed and has the robots exclusion tag NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW.

Just wanted to add that before Google switched things up a month or so ago i had 15 linkbacks.... then they changed stuff.... I had 3 linkbacks... now since the weekend i have 59 linkbacks ..however its not respresenting a crap load of ones i know i have, and its showing low PRs too.... face it, Google doesnt want you to see all your linkbacks.
also no change in PR / SERPS
