First I've heard of this...
Nice share - but am I missing something? This is all in theory and what if, possibilities and a guess on how it would work?
I did hear the rumors about Google working on such tool, but there has been no solid answers or dates.
I haven't used the Bing version, might be worth investing some time in checking it out.
While on topic. Do you think the Bing tool will mirror the (if released) Google version? And vice versa? If so, we may not even need to wait for Google...

I don't have time to find the source, but from what I understand Matt briefly mentioned at a conference (perhaps SMX) that they were considering possibly adding a disavow tool. It was very wishy washy and wasn't a promise by any means.
That's pretty much what the article said. More or less "possible" "might" "perhaps" "if" etc.
Too good to be true. In a way, I hope they don't do this. All the crappy SEO's would have an easy way out. However, it could help knocking out competitions...
Shrugs. I guess I can see the merit to both arguments.
They did that, mid July about 2 weeks after Matt Cutts broadcasted they were looking at that.
But no one wants to disavow links, they merely want to recover their ranks... those are two completely different things.
seomoz says "At Pubcon Las Vegas on Tuesday (10/16), Google's Matt Cutts announced a new tool to disavow links"
From what I read "bad link warnings in Google Webmaster Tools are currently the only direct signal from Google that they have a problem with your link profile."
So it seems like the great people at Google are cleaning up the world. And fortunately all of the number one ranked sites have gotten their because of great content and they only do manual link building. NO WAIT, they only have visitors who like them so much they put the link on their own site.
Wow, wont the tool make life so much better for all of us!
my advice is dont use it you are just supplying Google with info to make their job easier
