It's an interesting thought process you have there. As I said I am not
at all interested in getting into a long discussion trying to defend
Bill Gates on *anything* but I believe your statement to be false.

It also leads me to think for a moment about fanatics in our community.
Some people will attack their target based on any perceived weakness
they can find, whether that weakness is justified or not, and sometimes
when that weakness doesn't even exists. Fanatics are bad because they
are normally the most vocal members of a group and they attract
attention with the most outspoken opinions.

If you are saying the above because you genuinely believe that to be
true then I respect your opinion, but believe you to be wrong. If you
are saying it as an opportunity to knock Bill Gates I think there are
more obvious flaws in his business practices and sexual deviancy than in
his charity work.
