Damaging or objectionable innuendo can sometimes get associated with otherwise harmless-looking symbols or images. Although machines can recognize a wide range of mature or objectionable material, innuendo is difficult to detect. In certain jurisdictions, innuendo, even if transitory or understood only within limited groups of users, is considered objectionable. A media or communications provider who is unable to detect such objectionable material can be subject to penalty.

This disclosure provides techniques to crowdsource the verification of content, e.g., ads, for the presence of innuendo or other objectionable content. The techniques apply to ads or content that is presented visually or aurally.
