Here's how I respond to these link removal requests:
"Dear person-that-has-changed-their-mind, I already took the time (for free) to link to you after you asked me to. If you have changed your mind based on some hunch you have, (which in turn is based on some fearmongering by Google), then I will have to charge you $20 for me to take the time out from other important work to undo the work you originally asked me to do. Please quote your URl when you send the Paypal payment to ?@?.com
All the best
And yes. They pay. Google has people that scared, that they will pay me $20 to remove a link I gave them for free. So Google .... PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE keep scaring webmasters for no legitimate reason. It's going great!
