Bing Image Search Too Slow To Drop Removed Images?

Most image search engines, including Google, are very slow to pick up on new images but removing images that go 404, page not found? I’ve seen plenty of cases of Google showing images in their image search index that were removed. Same with Bing, their search engine seems to be pretty slow with their image search index.

DC DowDell, aka keyplyr, a moderator in the WebmasterWorld thread said he has been trying for about two weeks to remove images from the Bing index and it still remains. He said Google and Yandex, the Russian search engine, “quickly removed the pages & photos” but Bing 10+ days later still has those images showing up.
