I think is bad we implemented filtering without also providing a way to 
turn it off, this is restricting freedom.

Yes, I contribute to various FOSS projects, but usually not with web

 From a design point of view is *very* simple, do as others do and 
usually is done with radio groups in settings or account profile, here 
are a couple of examples:

- Google Image Search: radio group with 3 options - 

Google's SafeSearch blocks web pages containing explicit sexual content 
from appearing in search results.
* Use strict filtering (Filter both explicit text and explicit images)
* Use moderate filtering (Filter explicit images only - default behavior)
* Do not filter my search results

- Flickr search: radio group with 3 options - 

* SafeSearch on You'd prefer to see photos and video that is safe for a 
global, public audience.
* SafeSearch moderate You're OK seeing the odd "artistic nude" here or 
there, but that's the limit.
* SafeSearch off You're over 18, and take full responsibility that 
you're comfortable to see whatever turns up.
