Nainil and all former DNSO GA members or other interested stakeholders/users,

 Your exactly right here Nainil.  And what you suggested here again,
is what I had essentially suggested two days ago on this thread as well.
But thank you for yet again repeating same...

If you consider, the number of sites affected by this act of GOOGLE, it is practically impossible for it to keep humans. Also, what if there is an error done by the people hired by Google, "Manual data entry sytem could be a big issue". Plus --> Google would need to design a new interface for it's people to address the issue and make changes in the database.

Google changes it's current SafeSearch code to a more efficient one 2. OR Google for the time being stops SafeSearch option. It would just need to disable the SafeSearch Module.
