What really jerks me off is that when you do the Preview Comment it all looks OK, then when you go to Post it, it give you the crap about the spam.  I wrote two posts recently.  In the first post, I used the full names (2) of the two programs I was commenting on a number of times.  They were very similar.  The spam filter got me.  In the second post, I did not use the full name, but a partial name and identifier.  That post went through.  It would be better to show the problem in the Preview Comment window, and allow you to change it.

I use Bing vs. Google ( http://www.bing-vs-google.com ) and get the best of both worlds.

Using it, I've found that Google usually produces better results (In my oppinion) but Bing is getting better.

I use bing for the sake of competition. There's really no other reason. It works when I need a search engine, and I'm all for evening out the market shares.

I switched back to Google after the company pulled out from China. I felt I just had to support a move like that.

Hey MaxPC, I have something to tell you. I fucking hate your spam filter. I had a nice reply typed out for this article and it wouldn't go through, and I have absolutely no indication as to why. Please get rid of this.

Agreed whoever thought the spam filter was a good idea should be shot and hanged. It is inconsistent sometimes I can type a word other times I can't seriously wtf?

I like Bing's layout, but I still refer to Google when I need to get accurate results.

I decided to give Bing a try when it came out and haven't looked back since.  It's my default search engine now.

The fact is, in a market of free items, Bing is still inferior to Google.  Why would I buy Great Value toothpaste when Crest is the same price?  Inferior products only work if there is pricing to account for.

 

But we all know the real loser in all of this: AltaVista.

I don't even know what bing is. I don't even want to know what bing is.

 Have you been living under a rock? It's Microsoft's search engine that
was released nearly 4 months ago. .

I have found myself using Bing more and more. I find that especially for tec searches I get a more focused result from Bing. I have also noted that it is getting even better.

Competition is good.

I tried Bing, but found the results to be less than Googles.

I hate bing, but I'll admit that it's almost as good as google.  That's not really a compelling reason to switch though, is it?
