Bing Gets Porn Domain To Filter Explicit Content

sopssa writes “Bing has set up a separate domain just for porn pictures and videos. ‘[The] general manager of M|cr0s0ft Bing said in a blog post that potentially explicit pictures and video content now will be coming from one separate domain — explicit.bing.net. ‘This is invisible to the end customer, but allows for filtering of that content by domain which makes it much easier for customers at all levels to block this content regardless of what the SafeSearch settings might be.’ When Bing was first launched, there was some online chatter about explicit pictures popping up when videos were ‘previewed’ in the search results. This means the thumbnails and videos are served from that domain, allowing easy filter of them in corporate and school networks. Users still normally use www.bing.com. Instead of heavily filtering the results, this is quite a good move.”
