Apparently there are tweets from pubcon that claim being disavowed/on the receiving end of these requests...like Ezinearticles is bound to be...won't hurt you.
Interesting...make sense as dynamic sites like Wikipedia would be taken down in short order with disavows if this were possible. But I suspect google will still use this data somehow...someway. Maybe as a combination penalty...if you've been disavowed, stuffed your titles and you link built THEN you get penalized? Maybe they'll use it to test algorithms like how Panda was constructed? We know google loves data and they'll find a use for this new gold mine of theirs.
Other pubcon tidbit is that this works pretty much a no-follow...and perhaps that's all this is :/ ... If so, that has me a tad worried for Penguin hit sites and I don't know if you can nofollow your way out of Penguin. Also, even if it applied to Penguin does this mean we have to wait for the next data refresh and/or algo update? Google has all but indicated Penguin is about backlinks, but Cutts has been pretty tightlipped about explicitly stating this is the case. Hopefully he can open up about this and the disavow tool to help so confused webmasters.
What would be really cool is if in your webmaster tools you can see warnings where you've been disavowed by other webmasters which would provide incentive for (spam builders) to clean their own house.
