I know your opinion on the matter, you know mine, we talked before, I am 
not arguing with filtering now, I just say if we put filters we also 
must allow their removal by those who want and can.

My position is we should NOT add filters as long we don't also have ways 
to preserve the freedom.

My programming days are like 10 years in the past, I don't have the time 
to pick-up coding again.

I can spend my time better by making new clipart or... by promoting 
better my own clipart collection, which is more free (filters and license)

Sure, now the interface could be only a check box, "show nudity", off by 
default. But based on past discussions, a change of the database better 
would have in sight future expansions, for things like religion/occult, 
weapons etc.
