    BING Issues

    Just to let you all know (if you had not already seen it) the BING has had to be blocked at levels 2, 3 & 4 due to inappropriate images and videos being displayed. There is a temp block at level 1 /Adult whilst things are investigated and Synetrix are working with Microsoft to resolve this issue.

    If and when there is an update someone will update this message.

    Cheers. One of my schools asked me to block it for them globally anyway for the same reason, that explains why others haven't been able to get to it. Another one asked me yesterday why it wasn't working and I said it was likely to be the above reason

    Thanks Tony. I had suspected that it was something along those lines but it is nice to know for certain.

    I raised it with Synetrix the other day (when it was unblocked) after an innocent search for The Curve flagged up some things.
