What makes an outlier an outlier depends on the model. A highly discrepant
observation under one model is entirely typical under another. 

Even given a model, criteria for what consititutes an outlier vary by
application area and user.

Even given all of that, exclusion is only one of many possible actions.

Can you be more specific about your model for the data?
