I have noticed the last 2 days that a lot of images once again is missing, but the scary thing is only with filter on, so could be that Google once again is messing with there filter and a lot of normal content is blocked out.

I dont get it, why they keep messing with that filter it works as it is, but sometimes they change something and a lot of normal images are missing.

Ok lets see what happens, but for now it looks like a moderate filter on update.

I started seeing some really wrong captions on some images, where the algo is pulling the caption from on-page anchor text. How can on-page anchor text be a candidate for naming for an image that is also on the page?

I have seen that also, but I think they always collect a little text from the page to have a clear view of what the picture is about.

Today I have not seen much action, but they really have to make some changes be cause now to many real images are filtered.

Normaly it takes a weeks time.

Today I saw a drop from 4600 images to 645 image with filter on and there is 100% no adult images on that site, but I have seen this before, also there can still come changes to the filter, which I of cause also hope.

one more thing I still see A LOT of different sites listed in image search when I do a site:www.domain.comm which is incredible that they have not found a solution for that by now, but maybe they do like supplemental results just remove it out of users view, but problem still there.

That certainly sounds like a bug, doesn't it. I haven't run into it myself. Have you looked for connections between those domains - backlinks, hotlinked images, etc?

ohh thats hot linking 100% nothing els, but what scares me do they damage my clean site, means on those hot linking site do they have stuff there that could damage my site, like bad words/bad images, which then will be related to my site, this could really be the case, but it has been that way for years now.
