Just checked out Bing for sexual content in UK.
You can still get some but much fewer results than Google and a lot tamer.
Not that I bother with that kind of thing but it's nice to know MS are looking after our moral wellbeing.
I suppose the question is- if they are censoring porn what else are they censoring?

Cheers, John

Google's results say that when too many similar results are returned. Could that be the case?

I don't think so. Google returns a whole different set of results from the same query.
There is only one that is the same and does indeed lead to free adult movies on BING.
The rest are documentaries or studies of porn and it's effects etc.
I was gonna try other "controversial" searches like the name of a well known evil organisation but found I daren't.
I imagined bells going off in an underground bunker, men dressed as robocop, heavy boots in the hallway, the sound of my door breaking and so on.
When did our freedoms quietly slip away?
