    That is completely fucked- what is this, China?

    When I fish for images to post here (on Google images), it's nice to glance at the NSFW ones that pop up along the way....

    Video searches still work, just not images. They're fiddling with Safe Search. Maybe it's only temporary.

    Just be more descriptive in your search.
    They changed the algorithm so explicit content doesn't show up unwanted anymore.

    Google altered the way its search engine filters explicit results Tuesday, leaving many internet users confused and outraged that the site was censoring more explicit images - porn, to be precise.
    Previously, Google searchers could select three levels of "SafeSearch": strict, moderate or none. Search results could be drastically different at each one.
    Overnight, those three options were consolidated into one that allows users to simply "filter explicit results," with off set as the default (users can turn it on or off).
    What followed was a deluge of users who found that searches that would have previously returned explicit results were seemingly being censored even, as some reported, with the SafeSearch filter turned off............

    Yeah, "Jailbait Taking a Shit" just needs to become "Asian Jailbait Taking a Runny Shit".

    damn. you're correct. :mad:

    it's a good thing for family computers (kids, etc) but there has to be an 'opt out' button for douches like me.

    It actually might turn out to be a fun game trying to guess.
