No way jose. All of my sites have privacy and I have top rankings across the board on many of these sites. Privacy is not a ranking metric, or a very small one.

Re: Google Disavow tool for anchor text dilution - is it effective?

No. The disavow tool is crap, if you want to dilute then remove the links. Otherwise focus on bigger SEO issues that will have an effect on your rankings.

Re: Trouble using Google Disavow Tool, help please

Unfortunately the disavow tool won't work for whatever you are intending it to do. It was created to simply crowd source data for penguin, not to remove unnatural links.
