Should I get rid of citations on bad websites?

Most link providers wouldn't normally associate any domain with a keyword phrase - those are unnatural and are the target of your current recovery campaign. Connected to that if a link from a domain was devalued the domain is poison to you so you are best to disavow ALL citations from that domain but any link that is from a domain that never provided any unnatural links those are ok.
