Google is now showing the [X] icon from SearchWiki [google.com] functionality even beside the ad headlines. Does anyone know more about how it interacts with the ads? There's no information online from Google, unfortunately.

That help page for SearchWiki in the SERPs says:

Don't like a result?

Click [X] to remove it, and it'll remain hidden whenever you do the same search in the future.

But for ads...
- Will it hide all ad variations for that domain for "the same search in the future"?
- Is the QS or rank of an ad affected if the user has hidden ads for other keywords? For example, if I hit X on example.com ads for 500 different keywords, does that affect the display for example.com's ads for any other keywords?

Also, I wonder if this feature for AdWords is still beta/experimental/limited rollout...?

Lot of speculation, reasonable and wild, going around about this. Hope to see some kind of an explanation from Google pretty soon.
