Third strike = bing.com search bit the dust in China January 23rd

China seems to have completed a 1-2-3 you're out! block of the main fallback search site I use in China (with no VPN).  As of Jan 23rd 2019)all my bing searches were blocked.  That was my last resort English language search engine, but it seems to have joined google and yahoo as China has made a clean sweep.

Oh well baidu.com it would have been then, but I flew back to Australia the following day.  老鬼

I’m in China and use bing.com almost daily...  It isn’t blocked

It's possible.  Are you using a VPN?  I had been using bing daily too, since it was the only remaining search site available to me.  Then it simply ceased whilst I was in Shenzhen and Guangzhou at the end of my 9-week stay.  It was not my imagination.  I did not use any VPN last trip in China.

@oldghost No, I do not use a VPN.   Sometimes the internet doesn’t work well enough for a site to load.  Over the past 6 years that I’ve been living in China I have never had an issue with using Bing.  In fact, I used it 5 minutes ago.     https://cn.bing.com/

Good to hear! However for my last three days in China, staying very near Guangzhou Airport -  Baiyun Guoji Jichang - it was definitely blocked, and nothing to do with internet connection which was otherwise perfect.  Same messages as for Dropbox, Google (except for Google translate) and Yahoo.  Chrome browser.

dropbox, google, and yahoo search, unfortunately, ARE blocked here.

Yes they are, which is why a 'wee pee ennnnn' is necessary. That said, if Google, Twitter, Facebook, YT, etc, continue with their ridiculous censorship insanity, China can open its 'doors' to everything.

I see from the Wiki register of blocked sites that BING was indeed blocked on Jan 23-24 and then unblocked.  However I see that a whole raft of American media publications are blocked as of this month.   My linguistics friend today was unable to access BBC as I was trying to discuss marked and unmarked specificity.  BBC is blocked because it is now using HTTPS.  Bing I imagine will soon follow suit.

Collateral damage in the 'trade war' rapidly moving to 'cold war' status?
