Google Video Filter By Source A Porn Spam Target?

DecorPlanet posted a complaint in the Google Webmaster Help forums where Google Video search is showing pornographic and adult videos even when the filter is set to only show search results from his site.

To reproduce the bug or the spam target:

1) Go to Google Videos and search for "shower panels videos"
2) Under Any Source filter, click "decorplanet.com"
3) Go to page 4+ (first 3 and a half pages have legit decorplanet's videos)

Now, I don't see the pornography until closer to page ten or so. But I still see it, even when I am filtering the results to just show me videos from the decorplanet.com source.

Google Video Filter By Source Porn

I am not sure if this is a bug with Google or if pornographers are spamming an loophole in Google - or maybe both?

Gary Illyes from Google said in the forum thread:

Thanks for reaching out. I let the engineers know about it and they'll take a look.

The issue is still there and there is no word on a fix from Google yet.

For me: With Safesearch on, first youtube, hulu... videos are on page 9. No porn. With Safesearch off, first youtube, hulu... videos are on page 10. Yes, with porn.  I don't see any issue?

The source filter should only show results from the source site, not from porn site.
