Why is there porn on google image labeler?  At first it was just women without anything covering their breasts but I saw a sex scene the other day.  Is there any way to report this?

Hi Janoski,

The system is designed to only show safe images and we believe we are doing a good job at it, however, false positives do happen.  Thanks for pointing this out for us.

Cheers,
Evan

Hi Janoski,

Adding to what Evan mentioned, you may report adult images in Google Image Labeler through the Webpage Removal Request Tool. You'll find the link to the tool and handy instructions for filing a removal request in this Web Search Help Center article.

Hey Jimmy ... maybe I'm overlooking something, but when using Image Labeler, there is no URL provided for the image. Have I missed it?
Re: Porn on Google Image labeler Kaleh 4/29/09 7:09 AM
OK .. I see that I did miss the necessary URL.  After my time passed for labeling an image, I saw the following:

Images labeled - Click on any image below to find out more

Clicking on the image from that page, provides the URL that would be needed for the Webpage Removal Request Tool.

I do hope that Image Labeler will consider providing a  highly visible way during the labeling process to "Report this image" without the user having to jump through hoops to do so.

Surely you know about the image filter.  You can set your preferences (click on the "preferences" link).  The default is "moderate safe search".  There are yet more stringent filters.  Perhaps you have yours set to "do not filter my content"? 
 
Please do not get into the "it offends me so no one should be able to view it" mindset.  You aren't the boss of me or anyone else (well, perhaps in your workplace or at home, but that's it). 
 
While there are some things which should not be available (kiddie porn, etc), others are simply a matter of taste and culture.  In some societies, a couple kissing or a woman with uncovered hair can provoke your reaction.  In others, sex is no big deal but images of violence are objectionable. No one is insisting you view images you find personally objectionable.  That's why Google has content filters for both images and websites.  I suggest you make use of these filters.

The concern is a valid concern as there are images that by-pass the default safe search filter and there is a reporting mechanism (justifiably so) for those images.  There should be an easily accessible reporting mechanism from within the Image Labeler so that others can report images that are slipping through the filter.

I too recently have tried the image labeller, and se much nudity but no hardcore porn - what a pitty ;-)

Considering the amount of new pics arriving every day, and considering the pace of the image labeller - I seriously doubt that many will go the distance of getting the URL and proceeding through the Webpage Removal Request Tool.
