Submission + - Bing Requiring Strict SafeSearch in Arab Countries 9

D-Fly writes: Well, here's another nail in Bing's coffin as far as I am concerned. They've introduced regional preferences that are not changeable when you are traveling. I am in North Africa right now, in one of the Arab countries, and Bing's preferences are not allowing me to turn off Safe Searching. The preferences page says "Your country or region requires a strict Bing SafeSearch setting, which filters out results that might return adult content." Even people who don't use search engines to look for adult content often turn off "Safe Searching" since it can block material that isn't pornographic. But Microsoft won't give people here that option. Google on the other hand still permits "Safe Search" to be switched off.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
