Microsoft themselves want their users to upgrade to latest browsers (see: http://www.ie6countdown.com/) so the idea that they would take issue with someone else doing this (so much so that they'd remove them from bing) seems a bit.. unlikely.

For those who are not familiar with Mr. Kogan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kogan_Technologies#Controversie...

As another commenter suggested, I would not put it past him that he blocked bing somehow just for a publicity stunt. The wikipedia article hasn't even caught up with last week's stunt (or there are just so many that it cannot list them all): http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2012/07/kogan-launches-campaign-to...

I like these guys, particularly for the 'Website glitch', I can't imagine many retailers would take a similar stance.

Seems to me that these guys are great marketers.
