I still think it's a value place for wines which never get discounted, although I hadn't considered their shipping.
I agree with you. Wine.com usually has wines I can't get elsewhere at relatively decent prices, but not great prices. They often have deals on shipping or 10% off coupons, so I think those WineSpectator guys are being a little ridiculous.
The other great thing about Wine.com is you can schedule your deliveries for specific days months in advance which is great for people who live in hot states like me.
I picked up a deal on their steward shipping late last year which gave me unlimited free ground shipping for something like $20 for the whole year.
Also, if you picked up the LivingSocial deal, I think the Duckhorn trio looks like a nice buy for $99

My logic: Why would a deal site (living social, daily candy, etc), whose goal it is to sell as many as possible, care if I buy 10 or ten separate people buy 1? If it's a problem for Lot18, then they need to work that out with the deal site and ensure the proper controls are in place to prevent it.
The lot 18 people offer these deals to try and attract a broad scope of new customers and get them in the habit of patronizing lot 18.
Whether or not buying 10 or 12 or 16 is abusive rather than ethical, either way there seems to be nothing gained by boasting about it publicly.

I added mine to the spreadsheet, but I clicked on the deal through WineBeserkers.com and then came here to post the deal...but it was already posted.
