I just did a Google search before and noticed something I have never seen before. To the right of the familiar Cached and Similar pages links is one saying Remove result.

Does anyone know what this does ... just remove the link from this particular search? Filter it out of future searches? If enough people click "Remove result" for one page, does that page get less weight in the SERPS?

Thanks. I'm still curious though - do you think that, as with everything Google's been doing as of late - they are using data mining techniques to tailor their non-personalized search results based on the pages being filtered out?
