    Is this some kind of viral ad or something? All those searches work perfectly fine for me. Including from the links in the article.

    Nope. It doesn't crash with any of those 3 search terms.

    Did Technologizer get hacked or something?

    Looks like Bing may have fixed this–when I tried it right before writing this post, it worked. Or didn’t work, I mean…

  4. Tony Says:

    But, on the other hand, it was the first time I've used Bing. So, there's that!

    Well, entering "view" and "topic" didn't crash Bing for me, but "phpbb" alone did. It gave me the following message instead of search result for "phpbb":

    Funny.
