Apparently Not Too Many People In Europe Care About Having Microsoft's Bing 'Forget' Them
from the bing-is-already-forgotten dept
So, what's Microsoft doing? Well, it's taking it's time, but is promising to get a request form similar to Google's up. It doesn't sound like it's going to have to hire a very big staff to do so, because it appears that Microsoft's biggest concern in Europe may be more that it's been forgotten by Europeans. Almost no one is asking Bing to forget them:
When Google released its web form on May 30, for instance, it received about 12,000 requests within the first 24 hours. Microsoft is thought to have received fewer than 20 requests that day.Ouch. That's almost insulting. Hell, even we received a request under that ruling (though a bogus one).
