Filtering inappropriate images

I am creating a random image generator using Flickr for a class project. Although Flickr does apply censorship to its images, we are still getting some inappropiate images. Is there any way to apply filters for inappropriate content? Right now we are just getting images using random upload dates.

The following shows an example of searching for safe photos:

            Flickr f = new Flickr();
            PhotoSearchOptions o = new PhotoSearchOptions();
            o.Tags = "colorful";
            o.SafeSearch = SafetyLevel.Safe;

            Photos ps = f.PhotosSearch(o);
            foreach (Photo p in ps.PhotoCollection)
                Console.WriteLine("Photo '{0}' should be safe.", p.Title);

This does rely on the Flickr censorship working correctly.

Is there a way to get at this info given a photoid/secret?  PhotoInfo doesn't have it.  I'm getting my list of Photos via PhotosetsGetPhotos, which doesn't take a PhotoSearchOptions.

Since PhotosetsGetPhotos doesn't take a PhotoSearchOptions, is there any way for the order of the returned images to follow the SortOrder?

I've just had a quick look through the API and I can't actually see any way of returning this information for a specific photo.

Also, the photos in a photoset are always returned in the same order - there is no way to override this apart from returning all the photos and doing the reordering on the client side.
