The URL removal tool denied all of the removals of the garbage search results pages. It seems that I've followed the guidelines for removal, but they were denied anyway, with no further explanation than pointing me back to the list of conditions I complied with. Can't do the 410 because they are search results and not pages that have been removed. All URLs are showing up as blocked by robots.txt in Webmaster Tools. I guess all I can do is wait for them to drop from the index? I hope? Soon?
