PR Distribution Management

Threaded View
One of the links on my PR6 home page leads to a page, belonging to the same
site, which in turn is linking to, perhaps, 50 more pages within the same
site.  All these links are internal, and they are pure functional -- I want
my visitors to get there, but their PRs are of no interest to me.  These
pages are all PR4s and PR5s taking their PR juices exclusively from the home

My questions:
(1) Are these links indeed lowering the PR volume of my home page?  Could it
be that without them my home page might have been PR7 (it was PR7 for a
number of months before the most recent Google's PR update)?
(2) If so, do you recommend I use the "nofollow" attribute when linking to
that first page?  Will this stop "wasting" the PR in favor of the pages that
don't need it (from my perspective) and keep it all to the home page?
(3) or should I use a meta tag "robot [something]" (please help with the
syntax) to restrict the indexing of those pages (they have been indexed
already, though) and passing the home page's PR to them?

Thanks in advance for your comments!

(the link I am taking about is originated in the column on the left: look
for the image of an electronic dictionary)

Generally speaking: outgoing links are not changing PR of the page.
Only weights of incoming links are counted. Adding 100 outgoing links
to the PR7 page that had no outgoing links before will not change its

However, if some of pointed pages link back (not necesarilly directly,
through some longer cycle too) part of the PR can be brought back to
the page in question. It doesn't mean you can get infinite PR using
