Bug Description

The problem with that result is that it's classified as "18", not as "R18"; if we filter 18s we also wouldn't be showing, say, Game of Thrones, or a bunch of other films that most people would not want to not be shown.

In a later revision we should be able to give you the option of specifying which ratings you want, for example, but not yet.

We'll be tweaking the server to not give results for search-as-you-type of popular ubuntu applications, which would get rid of this particular issue; note, however, that searching for "horst" would still give you the result.

This is getting ridiculously problematic and trashing Ubuntu's reputation, see duplicate

I have gotten full on nudity from post modern art results in the shopping lens. Not a fan of either.

I thought I would add another amusing entry.
While searching for "Bri", for brightness and lock, it became obvious that I was actually looking to purchase "Wolfpack Bitches; an erotic short story"

I do believe this bug is no longer valid, given amazon search results are no longer included.
