From EJ Dickson at The Daily Dot —
Last summer, Tanya Tate received an e-mail from Amazon saying that her Amazon wish list had been deleted. A well-known British adult performer and cosplayer who recently starred as Cersei in the porn parody Game of Bones, Tate had not received any prior warning that her wish list was being deleted, so she called Amazon, asking why it had been taken down.
“They told me it was being used for ‘bartering purposes,’ because I’d written in the description, like, ‘Send me gifts and I’ll send you a thank you or pictures of me wearing this dress or lingerie,’” Tate says, describing a common practice in the adult industry. “So I put my wish list back up again, with no text at all.”
Tate’s new wish list did not allude to trading gifts for personal photos or videos, and she says it was connected to her SFW cosplaying website rather than her adult page. Nonetheless, a few days later, Amazon deleted her second wish list, then Tate’s entire account. She also lost the balance on her Amazon gift cards in the process.
