Yep, the comma splices irritate me, too. You can't just paste two complete sentences together with a comma; instead, you should use a semicolon!

Like so many of these examples, this us two separate sentences. I often find the punctuation the most confusing aspect of these questions.

The punctuation doesn't matter, Duolingo ignores capital letters, commas and periods.

I think the issue may be that in English this would be considered a run-on sentence (or run-on question,) which adds an unnecessary layer of confusion.

That's true, I just find it very, very hard to understand a sentence (or two) without them. I would have been almost completely illiterate in the ancient world.
