I posted about it on Google forums and they said those links are all de-indexed so I shouldn't worry about them. I also added them to disavow file as a precaution.
Do you think I should bother getting them removed from the internet- try to get the hosting company for this webmaster to remove them or rather move on from them?
None of them have shown up in webmaster tools to date so I think the guy from Google forums 'might' be right that Google ignores these links.
Anyone have ideas on this?
