Nationality of Domingos Jorge VelhoEdit

Agreeing that "Brazilian" was not a nationality at the time, which nationality was Domingos Jorge Velho? None? Uncertain? Ninguém (talk) 12:35, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Could you please stop following my edits and making unnecessary changes in the articles I recently edited? Who is the Bishop of Olinda and why did you include this unknown person here? He has nothing to do with the article. Even if he is the one who claimed Velho did not speak Portuguese, there's no need to cite this unknown person there. Opinoso (talk) 22:25, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Evidently he is Ribeiro's primary source. What's the problem with the edit? Ninguém (talk) 22:29, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

I won't start a new useless discussion. Who is the Bishop? Nobody knows. In the book, Ribeiro may cite him in a historic context, but here to cite this Bishop is an unnecessary and out of place information. Opinoso (talk) 22:55, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Why useless? Ribeiro wasn't there to know what language(s) Velho spoke. He therefore needed a primary source. The primary source in this case is the Bishop of Olinda. Ninguém (talk) 23:04, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
