Brazil: We will write in Portuguese indeed

Felipe Lobo [pt] analyses the many reactions brought by a post published in Portuguese at the American site propeller, among which comments like “Our national language is English! If you want to post something, do so in English”. The Brazilian blogger believes they will carry on speaking in Portuguese and says: “Informally, the Internet has English as its “official” language.
