The definition of discrimination is "unfair treatment of a person or group on the basis of prejudice" or "to make decisions based on prejudice".
Seriously--prejudice against the entire east coast? Somehow I think not. Discrimination requires them having a prejudice against the group of people, and not selling shirts at an optimal time most certainly does not qualify for that. They certainly did not make the decision of when to switch shirts based on any prejudice against the east coast, they did it because it's their HQ's time zone and it was convenient. Their decision had NOTHING to do with prejudice.

Woot is based in the Central time zone (Carrollton, Texas and St. Louis, Missouri, mostly), hence using the Central time zone. We feel everyone has an equal opportunity to move to Central.
But everyone KNOWS New York is where it's at.. Think about it: TV ads all say something to the effect of "8, 7 central", then there's Times Square, Regis and Kelly, Bernie Madoff... Jeez.. I can go on and on... What the hell is in Carrollton Texas, besides woot?
Make it midnight Eastern, 11 Central and 9 Pacific..

none of you shooters(shirt.wooters) should be complaining about the sellout. I live in Maryland and managed to stay up until 1am for this magnificent shirt. So all you east-coasters, drink some coffee..otherwise beat it.
I live paycheck to paycheck thanks to woot.
