Censoring Search results is a big can of Worms, If they are then its a ******* stupid idea if they want people to seriously consider their search engine instead of Google or Yahoo and it will allow Corporations the (legal?) right to request search results be removed for all sorts of things instead of using traditional DMCA Notices

exactly. when i found this i automatically wondered what other content they've suppressed. this finding has huge implications and people need to be made aware of it

Apparently you cant search for the word "Sex" in India using bing.
Also i tried searching for some lyrics and wasn't able to a find the song.

My Verdict: Not To Bing! Google FTW!!
