Should Google Search Suggestions Show Adult Suggestions?

A Google Web Search Help thread has an annoyed searcher who is upset Google's search box offers search suggestions for "youpron" when you type in the word "you."

Google YouPron

The easy solution is to turn off search suggestions in your search preferences:

Google Search Suggestions

But you cannot turn off search suggestions on every computer your child has access to. So the big question is, should Google's search suggestions have a strong adult filter that disallows adult oriented suggestions by default?

I think children should always be supervised whilst using a computer connected to the Internet. Search suggestions should have a strong adult filter in my opinion with the option in preferences to disable it for adults who prefer it enabled.
