Bradley, Phil (April 30, 2013): If you're taking a look at the search engine now, it's changed, quite dramatically. I think they worked hard on it over night. The search option now links directly to a Google custom search and they've just gone straight across to the Google page for the custom search. Image search has also changed, and there's no reference to the unacceptable terms - you just don't get anything now at all! They're also using the Google safe image search as well, so a search for 'blue tit' defaults to just 'blue'. My 'dogging' search does however still pull up some unsavoury images. So all told - if all that they are using is a Google custom search with a safe filter on, you may as well just go there. Source
