I swear! They're sending me a check any day now!

joetehpeacock welcomes another newbie to the internet in this post, and lets them know that Bill Gates has no intention of sharing his fortune.

Now, I am glad that you have found your way onto the internet. It's a pleasure to have you here. And I appreciate your attempt to foster your own greed by passing along a chance for me to do the same. However, I - and all the other "oldbie" internet users (we all chat in a chat room together called #oldFartsOnTheNet and I asked them, and yes - all 2 billion of them agreed) - would appreciate it if you would refer to Snopes when thinking about passing along any emails which offer free items or benefits simply for passing them on.

This is just a snippet, because the entire post is kinda long, but it's worth the read. QWP.
