Should I Claim Every Publication that I'm Listed as Author On?

The short answer is yes. But if there are publications that you really don't want to be associated with, the best course is to ignore them. Don't reject them.

When you reject a publication that is your own, you could be training the harvesting algorithm to ignore other papers you've written. You are in effect telling it that you are not this person. 

For the same reason, if the harvester presents duplicates of the same paper, go ahead and claim them all. You can consolidate (merge) those records later and select your most-preferred version of the record to show.
