That is absolutely correct. My post in the price change discussion may be what made other folks think that such was promised. The only part that could be argued in their announcement is in the line "The sad fact is, nothing in our business - blank shirts, ink, labor, shipping - is getting any cheaper." The blanks did get cheaper.
FWIW, the $1 extra does not cover the cost difference in blanks - Woot makes less selling the AA shirts at $13 vs. Anvil at $12.

If you have t-shirts melting, something is wrong with your dryer! The printing, perhaps, but not the t-shirt itself. Not to mention, cotton doesn't melt - it only burns (at 400+ degrees).

The latter. AA still lists them at 4.3oz.
Over the past year, there has been a lot of comments with regards to the weight and feel, with different folks commenting about which brand feels thicker or thinner. It's very subjective, and I believe the softness has to do with that too.
