Dude, is this some inside reference that I'm just missing? Even if it is, showing a silhouette of a person in a wheelchair on a product called "SMARTIES sauce" might be construed as mean spirited. Would you please consider removing this voluntarily?

Also, I didn't write the word "smarties" in my comment. I wrote the word used by the designer, but the Woot filter apparently changes the word L-A-M-E to SMARTIES.

Wow...that's rude.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Always a joy when the bloody filter makes it difficult to communicate.

Though I wonder if it will always change the word Dallas Cowboys, or only when used as "Dallas Cowboys sauce". Judging by the preview, I guess it will always change the word l-a-m-e.

I do not want to avoid the forums, but at this rate, I cannot trust that what I am reading is what people are actually writing. And judging by the preview, "do not want" is no longer being changed to.. I want to say it used to be changed to "I can haz". So not only is the filter changing what we're saying, what it changes one week may not be what it changes the next.

The woot filter has been around for the entire time the site is here. Use of certain words and phrases isn't allowed, and they pick something funny to run in place of those phrases/words.

lame and do not want and first are among the phrases that people post during woot offs in a vague attempt to...I don't know, honestly. It's always struck me as pointless whining, which woot capitalizes on for a laugh.
