Sounds a lot like sour grapes to me.

Please explain to me how this differs in Bill Gates cashing in on the labor of

They were screwed, blued and tattooed!

IMHO, a man that promises nothing is a whole lot more honest than a man that
breaks every promise he makes.

BTW, do you really believe everything you read?
