Best site for learning vocab, hands down. This helped me so much to where i am today. That's that, i would voice just a bit of annoyance though. Can the users promote to replace certain sentence example somehow? i can make some of them myself, even, and maybe the admins will be so kind to judge whether it's good to put in or not. As for the reason why, i think i will refrain from going overly specific. Let's just say not all people in the world shares a common belief on what is what and where it is. I think to cater to all different people with different backgrounds it is necessary to filter out some of these examples. Personally, i find them ticklish, but others with the same "place" as where i came from will probably be sunburnt. I understand that examples are just examples and in no way should be taken personally other than to learn the language. That is why, really, just a minor annoyance, and nothing else. I wish the best for this site, You guys are awesome. Thanks.

TL;DR : can we change some of the examples?

That's where the sentences are from: http://tatoeba.org/ It is a community project, so you can register an account there and influence the example sentence database in a way you see fit.

Like @jakobd2 said, sentences in Jisho are from the Tatoeba project, which anyone can help edit. When you search for sentences on Jisho you will see a small link labelled "Tatoeba", which takes you to the Tatoeba page for that sentence.
