I might be a little trollish in this message, do try not to take it personally.

And sometimes the "hard" questions are rhetorical/self-serving/sarcastic and above their pay grade.
But with the big issues, like the Plus deals scattered about and smothering the one item a day stuff, that a large number of people are complaining about, the staff is strangely quiet.
Not really so strange - They're the face/voice of the company, so if they don't have a directive, there's really nothing they can say that won't get them in trouble. They're mods, they have to accept the kerfuffle and help everyone cope. If you're looking for them to agree with you when even the Newsletter said "It's not going back, everyone!" - then you're just not going to get what you want.
That's alright Woot, the customers are listening as well. Our concerns are not being addressed, even if it's to say that they won't be addressed.
Wasn't there a newsletter, blog post, and video wootcast that said that it wouldn't go back to the way it was, which everyone is clamoring for? I'm sure the ongoing suggestions for improvement on the current design are under review. They'll pick what they like out of the forum - and if enough people send it over to Beta Feedback (and it can be reasonably done with the "new" vision), I don't see why they have to tell anyone until they implement it, which could be months anyway.
It's obvious who's really running the site now. Just bring on the screaming monkey with the coat and tie instead of the mask and cape as a final nail in Woot's coffin.
That would actually be the PERFECT addition to my Secret Agent Cthulhu. AiAi B'O'C'thulhu F'thagan!
