Whenever anyone posts a comment that doesn't sound like anything anyone would actually say in a forum posting (like the bit about back rub) I can't resist the temptation to Google the post and see what comes up. In this case I found a word for word match to a hub page at:
http://mywebs.hubpages.com/hub/What-is-Google-Page-Rank
I am assuming that you didn't just Google the question and find this answer and then copy it, but that this was your own hub page and you recalled what you said 2 years ago?
It's a strange coincidence though, because another of your postings (on the thread Benefits of Link Building) doesn't read naturally either and also exactly matches a statement made elsewhere but apparently not by the same person who wrote the Hub Page.
