I can't find any way to remove an app from my purchases. A user may want to do this if they don't like an app that they've purchased or no longer have a need for it. There should be some way to filter the list.
This is a good idea.  Can AMO steal this bug or is this for something else?

I'm not keen on this for AMO. The listing of purchases is an accurate listing of what you've spent money on. 

I don't want to remove those records, they are key for accounting, stats and so on, so we'll have to add a "hide" this addon flag. 

Then there's the support issue of "the app isn't showing up because you've maybe marked it as hidden"? If we put a total on this page of how much you've spent, would this show up or not?

To me, "My Purchases" is primarily a list of purchases for refund, accounting and so on purposes for the end user. Not something they'd be visiting a lot. I'm not sure what the use case or end user demand for AMO is.
Here's a use case:

I'm looking for a new game. Something that's easy to play and can kill some time while I'm waiting to pick up my kids. I decide to download Munchkin Poppers. (I'll let others decide what this game does.) Unfortunately, the game isn't for me. I now see this game on my list of apps on my phone and on my PC but I'm no longer interested in the game. What I need is a way to remove this game from my list.

I agree with Andy's comment 4 that I do want a list of all purchases and would expect to have the ability to reinstall this game later without paying a second time.

Agreed you should be able to remove a game from any phone, dashboard, desktop or where ever you launch things from regularly.

I'm not sure where AMO fits into that, so I'm removing the block, when I know will add back in :)

I think we agreed you should not be able to remove from AMO My Purchases which has a different use case.

Yes. Agreed. We need the complete purchase list for audit purposes.

Presumably there are new mocks or plans for this.
