I do suggest, to save the artist heartache, your time and efforts, and not to mention all the people who are hoping for a print, do your rejections BEFORE it ends up in the Fog of War.
This has been a repeated complaint for many years. Woot once rejected designs the moment that it was submitted if IP or similar shirt was apparent.
I do not know if we have less knowledge tattle tails, if there is a smaller force of contributors that take note, if woot has changed their MO, or what? But, they seem to have taken a more gentle touch to rejecting, and rarely doing it unless the IP is OBVIOUS or the shirt gets a bunch of tattles.
I'm sure others will add their ideas about the why, but I doubt they will challenge the change in frequency.
On your point, tho, I do agree.
