I have been buying items from woot for a long time (since woot 1.0, I think). I am very disappointed to see you play on words by using the word Christmas and calling it Crapmas. The word you are replacing is Christ which is the reason for our existence and our ultimate hope. I wish you reconsider and use a different word.
While you might find this offensive, I'm sure many people don't. Also, many don't share your beliefs.
My mother and my wife are both main-line protestant ministers and I grew up, and still am, a Christian. However, Woot!'s marketing doesn't bother me.
Now, if you want to make the argument that Woot! shouldn't belittle any religion, you'd probably get a larger support group, but I'd argue that many other retailers have already crossed that line.
Poor marketing? Probably. Worth complaining about? Maybe. Is it going to change anything? Doubtful.
I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with you. I'm just avoiding work and pointing out the futility of your complaint.
