8. I think so

 

1) he isn't normally that tactlessly partisan
2) that font looks crisp for a picture

6. Haha, don't forget about the Red Ring of Death

That was the "blue screen" equivalent for Xbox 360.

7. this comes under "fair use" of his image as a public figure in satire

 

so no legal standing for a lawsuit.

9. I don't get DU'ers sometimes

instead of discussing the message people are trying to figure out whether it's photoshop or not.

Who gives a flying fuck?

What's important is the message. FFS

Good on ya, Bill.

10. Putting words in someone's mouth isn't exactly cool, in my books. And yes, it looks photoshopped. nt

11. Still, it is bedsides the point

but if you feel so strongly about some individual online using Bill Gates's image that anyone can
get from google to convey a message, email him and let him know.

I'm sure he'll thank you for it.

12. FTR the message was an easy slame dunk here at DU

The only thing that really was new to me was the photoshop issue. Ok, the message is great, I think we all agree on that.

YMMV.

15. My point exactly

I just hate when people hijack threads using ad hominem to deflate the subject.

16. I think OP should have been marked "Satire" or "Photoshopped"

Misinformation -- disinformation -- is not cool.

Folks, do you all understand that Bill Gates didn't really say that?

17. True, all that. Bill has changed a lot. My iconic memory of him remains:



One of the cutest mugshots ever.
