I run a fairly popular directory myself (established in 2003). It is not a good practice asking for money to remove links. The only thing we ask for is that the removal request be sent from an email that belongs to the website to be removed, to establish ownership.
Same here. I also send them an email back saying it's removed and wishing them luck in their return to decent rankings! I hate that some will charge.
