Woot...is ....broken! Oh no! Or oh yes, since this has been a bad woot off on all counts.

Hey Woot, here is a hint..if you want to make us all woot-off and or check back many, many times during the morning/day/evening, how about NOT wooting the same item in a few hours?!? Just saying. Now get it together, make us proud and give us good woots! Or people will start seeking out other sites. You had it all at one time, so step up your game and get it back. Thanks, your loyal wooters!

Are we sure this is a 4 day Woot-Off and that there wasn't a loose cable fudging up the results?

For those of you wondering about the Barrels of Crud, my theory is that the c.r.a.p. escaped their b.a.g.s. and found their way into the wootoff. }>

I'm proud to say that I didn't buy anything. In fact I only looked at it once or twice an hour, if I wasn't doing anything else. This isn't Woot any more, it's just a bunch of hucksters selling garbage, much like ThingFling or the other low-class sites.

Maybe it's being run by the federal government... who else could possibly fawk it up so badly?

Did woot officially sell out and not have a wootoff WITHOUT a Barrels of Crud or a flying monkey? Has this ever happened?

Naughty woot! Sad day, actually 3 sad days to woot-ville. No Barrels of Crud No monkeys. Very little quirky (leak frogs are still quirky to me). Humph.

I don't get it. You built your following on the unexpected. The square pegs for the round holes. And now this? So sad. My Pavlovian response to yellow woot lights has changed from childlike joy and giddiness to woeful disappointment. Thanks woot for killing one of little things that made my world happy.

Apparently many of you are still surprised by what has happened here. Amazon bought Woot. Now Woot is nothing more than a place for Amazon to attempt to offload the c.rap they can't seem to sell on Amazon. That's why the repeated items constantly. That's why the lack of an actual deal at any time. That's why no b.ag of c.rap. And let's be honest, with Amazon in control, the b.ag of c.rap would be.... well, just a b.ag someone c.rapped in. Kudos to those of you who were here before the buyout, I commiserate with those who weren't that lucky and cheers to the guys who sold Woot to the devil for being able to make a mint and still retain jobs writing clever little blurbs to keep the masses believing it's still a nifty, cult website that "wooters" get to be a part of. I'll stick to rarely checking deals.woot since it has things from other sites and move on with my life knowing that the always true has been proven again: All good things must come to an end.

That was - without question - the absolute worst Woot Off I have ever witnessed.

I've been around since 2008 and I usually love Woot Offs even if I find nothing. It's like going to a garage sale. Sometimes they have nothing but a 300 piece collection of garden gnomes their (now departed) granny bought them and some heinous sweaters but you still leave amused.

The atrocity which called itself a Woot Off this week reminds me of a garage sale as well - one in which the tenants of a crack house sold their living room set which smelled like urine and had visible rodent holes to someone I knew in college. Needless to say, that furniture went into the basement (which later flooded) and was never spoken of again.

Oh well so much for this site. Another corporate giant buys out a smaller company. Sucks the life out of it and ruins what made Woot the greatest "deal a day" website on the web. It's a pitty that they did away with the flying monkeys, the yellow usb lights, bacon salt and the Box Of Crackers. It was fun while it lasted, now we can all go outside and get lives.

I never did manage to get a Barrels of Crud Guess I will never know.

So how do we cancel our Woot account?

Ahhh...to have been a Wooter when woot was young. There ISN'T always a ballsack off center with every woot-off. Just on Most wootoffs. But there always used to cool electronic stuff you didn't know existed and just had to have. And never the same poop twice. I used to stay up until the new stuff posted every nite before going to bed. Now I only check if it's convenient. Too many laptops and tablets and I-pod aftermarket crud now.

I like Amazon for what it is, but they changed Woot into something that just isn't worth a penny buried in a turd.

Well then, I guess I stumbled onto a loophole. I was running Wootalyzer and you know it opens a new screen for each new Woot. The current Woot showed the two laptops, but I opened a previous window on the browser, saw the Samsung Camcorder and thought, "What the hey" while hitting the "I want one" button. Lo and Be Old it worked! I bought the Camcorder after 3 AM EST on the 24th! Check it out, I'm the little 1% bump on the 2 AM line in the "Percentage of Sales Per Hour", AND my name is listed as the last Wooter to Woot. So we've officially debumked the "rule" that Woot Offs cannot last more than 72 hours. This one was 75 hours! WooHoo

Still didn't get a chance at a Barrels of Crud though... never saw it and I'm guessing here that Wootalyzer doesn't report it... but wouldn't it show up on the Community listing? I'm over 100 years old and I still miss it every time.

They banned this in China... it seems that the phrase "Coke Adds Life" translates to "Coke Returns Your Ancestors From The Dead". Not good for sales.
