    I'm not sure whos all affected but it seems google has made it so moderate safeSearch is always partly on and you can't fully disable it,so anyone that uses google for dirty things is gonna be pissed...

    Between insane and insecure
    I haven't used Google images for anything in years.
    I have never gotten a single good result from Google images.

    I have no idea what you're talking about. I have SafeSearch off and I can still look up regular "dirty things" just like before.

    Im guessing you are one a network that doesnt allow for safe search to be turned off.

    It seems to be a US thing from what i've been reading...
    ~edit~ There seems to be a loophole tho,you can go to different versions of google and disable safe search...

    Just tested it on my computer...and i have the same problem as well, theres only a moderate filter function available and apparently safe search off might be automatically activated but i have not confirmed it yet. Might be a U.S. Thing after all though.

    I've found that no matter the setting, Google Images will find you porn... whether you want it to or not.
