Bug Description

It is possible for a child to see obscene (though censored) images through the Amazon search. Try searching "Hot Lesbian Porn" or even "Dildo"

Either there needs to be some keyword search limitation at the productsearch.ubuntu.com end, which would not be ideal, as this could be considered censorship, or Canonical should think about parental filters to be built into unity in a default install (though not enabled by default for the initial account). These parental filters could then analyse what comes back from productsearch any any other lens which gets added in the future.

Additional search: a child may decide to go looking for pussy, assuming they're searching for a cat. The results of this one are not very favourable.
