The ODRS is the service that produces ratings and reviews for gnome-software. I built the service a few years ago, and it’s been dutifully trucking on ever since. There are over 25,000 reviews, 50k votes, and over 4k different applications reviewed. Over half a million clients get application reviews every single day.
Recently it’s been showing signs of needing work, and so I’ve spent a few days converting it to Python 3, then to SQLAlchemy, and then fixing all the broken stuff that we’ve lived with for a while (e.g. no emoji support because we were not using utf8mb4…). Part of the new work will be making it easier to flag and then moderate reviews, and that needs your help. Although any unauthenticated user can report a review for any reason, some reviews should be automatically marked at submission if they contain known bad words. There is almost no reason to write a review in locale
en_GB and use the word fuck and so I think marking that review as needing moderation before it’s shown to thousands of people is a sensible thing to do.
To this to work, I can’t just use a blacklist of words as some words are only really vulgar in some regions, and some are perfectly valid words in other languages. For this reason I need the blacklist to be keyed to the submitted locale.
This is where I need your help. If you can spare 2 minutes, and know a lot of dirty words in your language can you please add them to this spreadsheet. Much appreciated.
