So much im not willing to give them money for this shirt.

This shirt almost feels like a slap in the face.

When did the old Woot stop? I’m trying to figure out if I miss the old woot or just the old new woot.

I guess I was a part of the old woot but I unsub’d a long time ago. Then got an email from amazon saying to join. They bought out woot? Because I haven’t been on her in a year at least, what’s this new compared to the old?

Amazon bought Woot in 2010, so you have to reach pretty far back to get the pre-Amazon Woot.

I have a Woot! launch shirt. Never worn. XXL.

Don’t know if I ever will. I joined right after it started.

I wish I could remember what year it happened, but one year when Amazon only carried books, they mailed out thermal cups to their loyal, early customers. I used it, so it’s not mint, but I did hang on to it. I really should look and see if there is some sort of date in small print on it somewhere…if I can find it.

But nobody has answered my question! When is the old woot? Because 10 years ago is a long time to be mad. I say, the old woot is 3+ years ago? Does that sound good?

You know, when he’s busy like that, I usually just send him a quick email.

Did you try the high 5?

I’ve been mad at Woot since July 13th, 2004.
