Google PR updating and selling PR

I got some spam today from a webmaster excited that his site's PR is going up. Now he can raise prices:

Thank you for your continued support to where one of the websites you have listed is:
As you may or may not be aware, Google has begun their page rank update, and fortunately has begun to see an increase to a Page Rank 5.

This is will lead to advertising prices increasing on our website, however we have a special offer for all of our clients.

Until Google update all their datacenters with the new PR, we will offer all clients the chance to buy advertisng at the current lower monthly rate shown below.

Header Sitewide Link: $17.5
Footer Sitewide Link: $12.5
Sitewide Banner Ad: $30
Homepage Link : $10
Category Link: $5

It amazes me that people still get excited about PR updates and that they base their prices on PR. Hasn't it proved to be mostly useless over the past year?

Do PR really matter now ?
I have a PR4 website, and it gets 1 visitor a day. All the pages are supplemental.
