Perhaps this has been discussed before, but why is everyone trying to
identify porn *before* the object itself has been retrieved. Why not
post-classify the objects (ie. HTML pages and related images) retrieved
and reject subsequent requests (or alter/purge the object in the cache).

Of course its difficult to classify images, but at least altering the HTML
page which refers to the images will ensure all but the most determined
from wasting bandwidth, breaking regulations etc.

Any ideas/comments?
