Too many iffy images getting through our ISP filter recently.
SWGfL is our ISP and recently we have been finding that despite many tweaks too many images not suitable for KS3 students are making their way through the filters. We have a duty to prevent this. I have asked in a similar thread already but now I have the ear of the management and the promise of funding I'm trying to establish which is the best value and most effective package to buy in.
It's a great shame that Yahoo, Bing, Google etc are failing on this - that said at least with Google you do have the option to report offensive images.

Nothing's perfect - a combinmation of force strict safesearch, deep url filtering and blocked search terms will get you a fair old distance though

it's knowing what to block though that seems to be half the battle - xxxx in any image search for example brings images that link to some ugh sites - on the other hand as xxxx et al is in many items of Internet based content then we found that by adding aaa to xxx brought our e-mail system to an unworkable state as messages with those strings refused to display or delete!! Additionally if the searches are tightened down too much food tech students for example searching for Apple Pie can't pull any images up! It seems that folk are posting images more frequently with unrelated titles to the image hence the students are finding them more often, sometimes inocently.

Seems you need something like smoothie which dynamicly scans content
From my testing it seems to be doing pretty well at blocking!
