    DuckDuckGo censors results


    Of all the search engines, I'd always imagined Google + Bing to be more censorious than DuckDuckGo - indeed Google gets millions of requests a year to not list pirate material. For some reason, I thought DDG more liberal - wrong !

    Today, something jogged my memory and I did a DDG search for a password cracker I used about 20 years ago (note - I am not trying to hack any pc). DDG returned this

    The same search on Google + Bing just returned the usual urls.

    Weird eh ?

    I've used Google Search for years and have never noticed censoring problems. It often does go too far astray from the requested topic, though.

    Is All Regions selected here?

    DuckDuckGo Settings

    Out of interest do you get better results here?

    For search query:

    password ******* site:sourceforge.net


    I get plenty of results using start.duckduckgo.com

    Maybe try a search with browser addons disabled just in case something is messing with search results.
