That wasn't a deterrent in the past with the Ramy/Seki duo.
One aspect (loophole) that has since changed is that the sales aren't counted now until the transaction is fully processed. In the past, the sales counted as soon as the shirts were added to a cart, so a pre-noontime 'I want three' could gauge the number of sales necessary for safety, resulting in the post-noontime jumps too.
And tater, while I don't approve of your tactics, the end result is always appreciated. You get a gold star.
As I see it, such is still fair game when it's not done as self promotion (cheating). The sales cut off at noon, so an 11:59am transaction still counts.
Keep in mind that I noted that it would've taken a (+18). Several of us have already counted on it not making the cut, so making it into safety with a (+14) was indeed a huge surprise. And the end result, with two positive consequences, was VERY appreciated.
