    Bing And Yahoo Censors Sex & Related Keywords Search In India

    Poor Indian just can't get a break. Apparently Bing and Yahoo! have decided to censor certain keyword searches for India only. If you ask me this is a huge violation of rights of Indians, but what can you do?

    This is big issue with Google India. There is a heavy load of searches for sex related terms in google, for India.

    Google needs to stop supporting censorship.

    This is getting out of hand. Time to make more proxies.

    I don't think Google is the one doing this, it's only Bing and Yahoo! according to the article. However Google may be doing something similar, I'm just glad I don't live in India so I don't need to deal with this suppression.

    Google censored itself for China (since the government there pretty much wants to control the internet)

    So Yahoo and Bing censor sex now. doesn't mean the search will stop
    /fail

    Its funny, if you go to google india and type in "how to" the suggestion box is filled with things like how to undo a bra, how to get pregnant, how to kiss.

    It's hilarious, their entire country is horny as hell.
