You guys are having your creative juices sucked out of your marrow.
I know a half-dozen anvils hand delivered will be tough to beat, but you guys are mailing it in lately.
I finally won a Bundles of Crayons and it really was a Bundles of Crayons One item had a post-it note with the customer's phone number on it and a note indicating that it wasn't what they ordered. And everything in the box was covered in sand, grit and flecks of paper. I was able to faithfully reproduce this detritus by sweeping the area beneath my desk chair into a dust pan and emptying that into a box.
It used to be Internet fun but now it's just corporate sheep-herding. Kind of like mandatory casual Fridays.
And you change B0C to Bundles of Crayons in my comments. It's just not cute anymore. It's like asking if something is Apple compatible. BORING.
A genuine original Woot!-istanian.

Ditto on all the above, and I agree with almost all the comments here. Yes, Woot! has lost most of its fun, but worst then that it has lost most of its heart and soul.

tolerance: a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one's own.
BOC: 4 Including the very last Woot!-off B)C. One of the lucky few.

I miss the old days, personally.
I wouldn't mind seeing another set of woot-off lights and sirens go up for sales.
I don't even remember the last time I saw a woot-off screaming monkey.
Come to think of it, when's the last time we saw a (forgive me as I exercise wit) container bearing gifts of an unknown and spontaneous form during a woot-off, let alone at all?
The write-ups have been compacted which has taken away some of the fun woot-offs are known for.
Additionally, I think I've seen more Dyson Vacuums these past few months than I have seen Roomba's over the entire lifetime of my account (to date) on woot.com, and that's not something I say lightly.
Edit: I almost forgot. What ever happened to the two-for-tuesdays which had some rather quirky deals but were always enjoyable?
5 years bag-of-crapless and counting...
