This statment is interesting to a native-speaker of the Portuguese language
like me to read. The differences between Brazilian and european dialects of
the Portuguese language are very very small (only ô versus ó, some "c" and
"p" as a silent letter for the european dialect and small variants
like a synonyms
most commonly used in one or other contry). If Serbian and Montenegrin
really have less diferecences than pt-pt and pt-br, I think that all
nationalist subscriber talking on this thread can be simply moderated.

(P.S.: I think that neither the Portuguese Wikipedia community isn't
supporting the creation of a new Wikipedia for any national dialect, neither
for any variant of Portuguese language between the brazilian states -- some
slangs from some states aren't understandable on others)
