Given the subject of today's wootcast, now is as good a time as any for me to point out what I believe is a gross disparity in the distribution of woots. If you move your arrow over the box next to Matthew's name you discover that Matthew has gotten over 25 woots - not only that but it taunts the reader saying that Matthew is better than everybody else! How did Matthew come by all these woots? Is he given an advantage over us little people in obtaining woots? I believe there is a basic inequity in the whole woot system favoring the "haves" over the "have nots". If a certain politician is elected President will this result in a redistribution of woots? Ponder that, my fellow wootizens.

Well, matthew is paid, which I guess could be an unfair advantage. Otherwise, woot! staffers buy their way into eliteness like everybody else. I think I'm up around 30ish shirts alone, for example.

Did you know shirt.woot ships internationally? Get you some!

Holy carp, I think you're right:

Now I'm kind of hung up on what this podcast could have been if Matthew had commented on that. Ah well. Still a good waste of my morning.

ok, so now I have to post a message on this thread so that I can see how many woot's I have done.

Thanks a lot.

After reading Gatzby's post (and looking at HIS box) the only change I would make in my assessment is that the Wootdom is an oligarchy rather than a tyranny. Et tu, Slydon?

What did I do?

Hi, I'm one of the writers. My powers are limited but I'll do what I can.

I'm now convinced it's a vast right-woot conspiracy.
