Earlier today Bill Gates announced that he would leave his day-to-day role at Microsoft to devote more time to charitable works.

At a news conference today Gates had the following to say:

“I believe with great wealth comes great responsibility – the responsibility to give back to society and make sure those resources are given back in the best possible way, to those in need,” he said. Gates added, “It’s not a retirement, it’s a reordering of my priorities.”

There are unconfirmed reports that Gates then snuck off to put on his Spidey suit.

Does this mean I’m not allowed to hate Bill Gates anymore?
