Paul and everyone,

 I do apologize for some more harsh language, but I won't apologize for
the ideas behind them, as I do believe in them.

 It was taken elsewhere and I did answered to one offending email by
private before all of this.

 I don't believe you are acting impartially, and I am not naive to
neglect that Brazilians do occupy some strategical positions in the
community (all in general) and that gives them more leverage power. I
was speaking about this some minutes ago with GNOME pt_PT translators
from which they said they were on my side on this one. 

 As you follow the trans_pt lists, you know by now that it is easy for
me to mobilize people. You also noticed that joining me to them, and
eventually rallie for the other Portuguese on the Project we would have
a more strong position, and by now you wouldn't be dealing with just a
contributor, but instead a potential leader of a small part of the
community. Which brings me to a question...

 Do you believe it would be better for me to leave? I really appreciated
your sincerity on it, and though you might not understand it, if that is
a benefit for the project or community, all you need to do, is ask for
it. I don't stay where I am not welcome, but I will not surrender and be
quiet when one or more attack my culture.

 For your information, you warned me once before, because "bleeded my
eyes", I failed to see you warning others that stated "bleeded our
hearts". If one is offensive, so is the other. I dont believe you are
being impartial Paul... But maybe you haven't readed all the thread, and
I understand you are a man without much time, unlike me.

 Please, if you believe that there is no place for me, feel free to ask
for my withdrawal. But I can't promise I will be nice if someone attacks
my culture and I do expect impartiality.

 Small heads up: I've not answered an email and stated it. I was
expecting your intervention there. My bad, wrong assumptions.
