Yes, this would bother me. Yes, I would probably change it to "Eastern
Time" provided that the site actually (1) shifts from Standard to Daylight,
and (2) doesn't shift its hours when switching.

Note that some areas never go on Daylight time at all, so it may be
perfectly acceptable to say Eastern Standard Time.
