we have two logs:

  • 13:39, 27 May 2015: 189.5.174.202 (Talk | block) triggered filter 1, performing the action "edit" on Lygia Moura Rassi. Actions taken: Tag; Filter description: Remoção de proposta de eliminação (details | examine | diff)
  • 13:39, 27 May 2015: 189.5.174.202 (Talk | block) triggered filter 1, performing the action "edit" on Lygia Moura Rassi. Actions taken: Warn; Filter description: Remoção de proposta de eliminação (details | examine)

For some reason AbuseFilter is using the same wikitext for both attempts to save the page. This is wrong! In fact, after the user received the warning, he fixed the issue and submitted the edit again, but the filter was triggered a second time, as if the user used the same wikitext twice.
