Some People Can't Read

A couple of months ago I made a post "about the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation":http://www.zefhemel.com/archives/2003/10/03/what-many-people-don-t-know-about-bill-gates. All I did was copy a bit of text that I found on some weblog that told about the good work they do etc. But during the last months quite a few people have commented on this post by asking for help. For some reason they think either that I am Bill Gates or that I'm in direct contact with him: bq. Bill Gates is a hero. I have heard so many good things about him. He gives to the poor and creates lots of jobs for the poor. I want to ask him to do me only one fever, I want him to help me with my brother who has a kidney problem. I want to know if he can help me to pay for one of my brothers kidney to be removed. If you get in touch with him,please let him know that I don't ask for too much. God bless bill gates.

bq. Gosh, bill gate,...if you are so rich…why don't u give some money to the poor…I mean one million dollars wouldn’t even be .01 percent of your earnings. In the bible the rich man gave money to the church but it was only about .01 of his wealth, and the poor lady, gave the church 2 pieces of silver and that was all she had, God bless the lady, and she has a reward waiting in heaven for her…which is eternal life. God doesn't like greed. Bill Gates are you a Christian or a man of God…well only you in your heart knows, and only God knows, that everyone knows that’s when you die, you can’t take the money with you. God hates greed. Not to say that your greedy…But with all that money…you can make this world a better place! THis message is for Bill Gates Himself!! Give money to the churches!!
