I am wondering what is and what is not progressive rock.

Say, Oceansize could be progressive rock, but they themselves hate this tag, so they say they're not.. are TOOL progressive? Porcupine Tree? I always get lost what actually IS progressive rock, cause I listened to many albums where bands say they're progressive, but actually there's nothing progressive there at all.
I am puzzled.

Oceansize, tool, and porcupine tree aren't exactly the prog stereotype, but their song structures are different from your standard verse/chorus setup which could be seen as a prog element.

i've heard some years ago that SOAD was progressive rock... but i have my doubts, would they fit in that category?

Yes yes, Deftones, yes yes, heavy metal, yes yes, n metal, yes yes, fucking queer, yes yes...

I introduced Kingston Wall to my girlfriend and now she's absolutely in love with the band. I'm almost left second... :(

I could probably upload some stuff later when/if I have time.

i would say godspeed you black emporer and similar spin offs like explosions in the sky should be considered as prog rock, i mean gybe starts with like a hobo playing the spoons and ends up with a 40 piece orchestra by the end, that's progressive.
