Does Bing/Yahoo block TK?

I've been reading that Google has blocked TK because of their spam. However, the site name that I want is taken by some placeholder. The only option I have to I have is to use a .tk domain, or do nothing at all (plus I like the sound of my domain name better with .tk).

Does Bing, Yahoo, Aol, etc. block TK? There is still a large population that uses other search engines than Google. I'm not really interested in Google Apps, either so that's not a problem.

I am not sure about .tk - I didn't think it was blocked. Could you please link us to a source that explains more?

.co.cc domains are blocked by Google. Not sure about any other search engines.

I think now is not necessarily free domain names .TK is blocked by Google or other search engines. But I think in the future .TK is at risk of being blocked as bulk waste is generated domain

Well,

When you say deindexed or blocked domains, what do you mean?
I tried searching in some search engines for the keyword .tk
and some sites that use .tk domains appear.

Deindexed has in not listed, indexed being listed. Block being not listed or indexed, and do not view or come up in any searches.
