Along with that, I want to be clear: We're moving forward, not back. There's no 'old' site for us to return to. We're here, in this new place, and we'll keep evolving and growing it, but there is no thought or possibility of moving back.
Thanks Dave, you just sealed the deal for me. I have sent an EMail to firstname.lastname@example.org asking to deactivate my account.
After 6 Years and nearly 250 woots of junk I didn't need, I have finally had enough.
I am done making purchases, done providing item feedback, and done talking about the origins of the "unique" stuff around my house, kitchen, and garage.
My Woot cellar branded wines are getting moved up in priority to consume.
Heck, I might even put the collection of never-used monkeys on the ebay...
It has been a fun run.

Woot used to be a cute and endearing site but now it's just overwhelming. Maybe if you didn't have so many categories in a woot-off at the same time. And when you put the amusing write-ups in a "click here to read more" column they've obviously become secondary or tertiary and I just don't bother reading them any more. I knew Amazon would ruin Woot!, and I am a fan of Amazon.
A genuine original Woot!-istanian.

(WharrbleGarrble and Platitudes removed for space/sanit/hate sake)
A. We want more money.
B. We don't really give a fetid pair of dingo's kidneys about your wants or needs.
C.The fact that you made us big enough that we can and will make more money means we no longer have to be good, we'll settle for just being popular.
D.We now have more "Go to woot" customers than we do "We love and care about woot" customers means that you leaving will mean zero to the bottom line of our 30 different woot stores.
E.We asked for your opinion thinking that we'd get a huge rah rah, but the fact that we didn't means nothing, we'll just make up some garbage about why this is and why it's not going to change ever, and you can just post your little heart away. $we$ $don't$ $care$.
I have seen a lot of things,..but I have NOT seen a lot of other things.
