Boycott Microsoft Bing


Microsoft apparently doesn’t want to pursue the Google solution of having separate sites – one that produces generally legitimate results ( and another within China that blatantly censors ( Instead, Bing figured it would have one site and just censor all the results in simplified Chinese characters.
