Does anyone purposely use Bing? It rears it’s ugly head occasionally and then I have to go about and change default search engine back to google.

I reckon this censorship will make it even less popular.

Does anyone know what type of Human involvement there was with an automated search engine to cause such an omission ?

Nobody believes Macroshaft's lies.

The phrase "human error" is intentionally vague enough to include deliberate acts which the company later recognizes as "errors" when they get blowback and not just accidental stuff.

Clearly someone in Microsoft deliberately altered the results to remove the images.

Rival Google exited the Chinese market in 2010

All the more reason to use Google instead of Bing, not that you needed more of them.

I can even estimate what nationality that staff has who made that little error. lol
