Bing Image Search is bad.
So I searched for pictures of Scootaloo being super adorable.
And I got Mario Strikers porn.
I mean, okay, I understand that people draw obscene pictures of ponies. So when I search for ponies with safesearch off I would expect rule 34 pictures of ponies sometimes. I can deal with that.
But Mario Strikers?! What? It’s not even close to ponies/Scootaloo. I mean, if it showed some Rainbow Brite porn or something I can at least say “all right it’s kind of like My Little Pony I guess”.
Seriously. I’m okay with porn. I’m unhappy that when little kids search for adorable ponies they get a bunch of rule 34 stuff, but it’s the Internet and it happens. But when your search engine not only gives me porn but it gives me irrelevant porn? That’s just bad.
Those of you who have been on the Internet for a while should remember the last search engine that gave random irrelevant porn results. Hint: It’s called Cuil and it’s dead.
EDIT: The softcore Mario porn is still there with Strict safesearch. Also some other users on Reddit have confirmed that they get the same results.
