In the third paragraph, there is the phrase "results now included in a standard mathematics curriculum". This is an ipse dixit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:30, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
when Wikipedia becomes nothing more than a peddler of Encyclopedia Brittanica Pop knowledge - you might as well close shop - for those who created the Georg Cantor webpage - EB is NOT a reputable source - THINKING is - try to THINK before you undo my edits - obviously you struggle with this and just fall back on EB as your "source" of the golden noodle - that is like saying the Sunday Mirror is a news source OR any other cheap trash tabloid - the man was born in St. Petersburg - he is RUSSIAN and always will be Russian - stop trying to claim him for Germany - you say you are not concerned with nationalistic sentiments - FINE - leave it alone and stop undoing the CORRECTIONS - — Preceding unsigned comment added by DigiSequenceSystem (talk • contribs) 12:14, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
you continue to deny FACTS in favor of sensational claims supported by the beacon of TRUTH - Encyclopedia Brittanica - block me - it ONLY shows you are weak and fail to accept the FACT that Cantor was RUSSIAN - repeated attempts to claim him for Germany are driven by your own nationalistic bias - it speaks volumes about the lack of integrity of your webpage being - you cannot censor TRUTH - any idiot except you of course can see the man was Russian - Germany is well-known for stealing ideas from the Jews to make themselves look superior - this is simply another case of that and YOU in your ignorance support it - memo to idiots like YOU - Russia is capable of producing world class mathematicians too - despit the lies you peddle - Germany is not the only country that studies mathematics dum dum — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 08:46, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
The Truth will prevail - after being blocked by YOU from editing for 2 months - I return - to correct your ignorance - CANTOR WAS RUSSIAN — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:42, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
I wonder if it wouldn't be justified under WP:IAR to just remove any mention of nationality from the first sentence and the infobox. While WP:MOSBIO does mention "location or nationality" as an element that will usually be in the lead paragraph, MOSBIO is a guideline, and guidelines allow for exceptions.
People, please, it does not matter whether Cantor was German or Russian. Get over your stupid nationalisms. His importance is as a mathematician. --Trovatore (talk) 20:16, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
Seems like a good idea to me. Paul August☎ 20:42, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
My hesitation is that I don't want to set a precedent for a hecklers' veto. Cantor spoke and wrote in German, not Russian (I don't know that he didn't know Russian, but I haven't seen records of him using it), he belonged to the German state church, and he lived most of his life in Germany. I think most sources are going to describe him as German.
But he didn't do his mathematics for the Tsar or the Kaiser; he did it for God, who has no nationality. --Trovatore (talk) 20:59, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
