Tech support scams go with a Bing

It is sad that we have reached this point.  Microsoft is now preventing online support ads in Bing because the high risk of fraud.  I am sure other search engines will follow suit.  This is sad because there are good platforms for providing sound online support.  Users lose in this situation, but I think Microsoft is doing the right thing.
