The proper word is "breathe." C'mon, woot writers! They pay you for this job!

Yeah, I gave up trying to correct the shirtwoot blurbs a while ago, as most of them were somewhat minor infractions. Today's blurb, however, is laden with error. I see at least one sentence fragment, a vague antecedent, awkward phraseology, and more.
I let myself believe that either the woot writer is either not paid, or is asked to do the write ups as a favor even though it is not why she/he was hired to work at woot. Add to that the daily load of woot write ups for each site, and I can easily imagine the incomprehensible babble that gets posted here.
Yet, there is no place like shirtwoot, and there are more reasons to enjoy than just the blurb.
