This setting only affects that particular mass removal. In general,
this is controlled by 'send_goodbye_msg' on the general options page.

If the issue is that notices are sent for a particular mass removal
even though send acknowledgement is set to No for that removal, this
may be a case of 'post' data being lost as Brad suggested in another
reply, but that usually results in nothing working at all.

Any settings you make to the radio buttons on the mass subscribe/remove
pages affect that particular action only. Defaults for these buttons
are as follows:

Mass Subscribe
   Subscribe/Invite = Subscribe (can't change default w/o hacking code)
   Send Welcome = send_welcome_msg setting from general options
   Notify list owner = admin_notify_mchanges from general options

Mass Remove
   Send Ack to user = No (can't change default w/o hacking code)
   Notify list owner = admin_notify_mchanges from general options

Arguably, the default for

Mass Remove
   Send Ack to user

should be send_goodbye_msg from general options, but it has been 'No'
at least since 2.1.4.
