@thunderthighs rocks.

Woot, Kids Woot, and Wine Woot are different though. They have a formatting guide at the bottom on the right of the comment window.

Someone mentioned at some point that deals.woot uses the same formatting syntax as reddit, and so far I've found that to be the case. Here's a handy guide that might help.

I went on the same hunt and came across this question and bookmarked it for future use. It kinda explains the text into url trick a little more cleaner than thunderthighs too.... Sorry :)
And a guide for the other woot sites if you hate downloading stuff.
