Overaggressive offensive content filter for translation uploads

The Duolingo offensive content filter is sometimes mysterious in the content it deems offensive. Here's a few Wiki articles I tried uploading in the past that I remember coming up as "offensive" for Duolingo:

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alessandro_Volta http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ren%C3%A9_Magritte http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baguette_(pain) http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89rasme http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_Giovanni_(opera)

Meanwhile, I should mention that DuoBot kept uploading wiki articles of porn stars in Italian for a few weeks. I think that has been fixed now but I just wanted to juxtapose that with the stuff I've tried to upload that Duolingo has considered offensive. rofl.

You can't talk about baguettes in the context of learning French? That's hilarious. And completely absurd.


Oh, I didn't know that was offensive content ;p Opera is so sexy.
