Uploading Wikipedia pages--Offensive content?

I tried to upload two Wikipedia articles about Isaac Asimov (http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Asimov and http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fondazione_e_Terra)

Both failed to upload due to possible offensive content. (Which I highly doubt is the case.)

Is this a glitch? If so, has anyone else run into this problem? (Or are articles about Isaac Asimov rife with offensive words...)

Thanks for sending! We're working on improving our language filter. I'll have our team take a look and see what happened here :) Thanks!


The ironic thing is--I just clicked on "Real World Practice" and Duolingo gave me a biography of a porn star to translate. So the filter is missing the actual offensive content and barring the non-offensive content.
