There should be a rule for pantone only colors imo if it's so common in derbies.
The other side of this argument is that no one should care what the image will look like on the shirt, and people are just voting on the idea since it's so vastly different on monitors
I don't even... You state something that contradicts what Ramy said, then immediately follow that up with a concession that he may have a valid point, all while not actually seeming to understand what he said.
Regardless, if woot's in the habit of tinkering with the coloring/print process in order to produce the best design they can, the customer isn't voting on what they see anyway.

The same goes for you, really. He posted his opinion, and you back-hand insult him for it not once, but twice. Say what you will about Ramy, he usually stays pretty classy in his replies to attacks; at least in the shirt threads.
You can say he's wrong and hold a differing opinion, but his explanation ("excuses") seems to have some thought behind it and isn't just something he's doing/saying to be an asshat (unlike some other people).
He posts the design in the colors he wants the shirt to look like and let's woot take care of the actual printing color configuration. You can say that you had a bad experience with it, but he says he's had only positive experiences with it. Your anecdote is not more valid than his. If woot messes one of his shirts up, maybe he'll take another approach, but so far it works for him, and as far as I can see, it's not hurting anyone at all.
