I, also, only remember one other Woot Off without a Bag of Cuuuuuuuuuute! I've been around for a while, too.
This was one of the worst Woot Off's I've ever seen but it wasn't because there was no Barrels of Crud. It was because it was like a parade of items that I could purchase any day of the week on Amazon at the same price. There were no real bargains. That's why I used to like Woot so much. You never knew what you were going to get but it was usually half decent merchandise and it was at a great price. You could probably look at any of the items sold over the last few days and find them for sale on Amazon at the same price. That's not new or different anymore. It turned the Woot Off into a catalog of items but no particular urgency to buy any of them.
I miss those days.

I totally agree. The fun of woot, for long time Wooters, even those that have been at it longer than me, was the randomness of the Blue Oyster Clut ... Not every woot-off had one, and the crud that was in the bag was totally unpredictable!
There was a blog post after the last woot-off about the realization of straying away from this, and the promise that they would change. Well they changed. Most of the complaints were that the contents were identical for all winners. I was like they streamlined the process but took the fun out of it. They also seem to be going back to the not every woot-off has a Big Old Carp. I'm ok with that.
A woot minion since 2006; woot, wine, home, kids, sellout, shirts, Moofi ... How about throwing a bone to the watches?
