Is the amazon tag really blacklisted? Can I ask a question with amazon as a tag?
This was simply an issue of patience; the blacklist is cached in the appdomain so you have to wait for a build to go out.
A build had not gone out yet, but I just forced one and now it works.
So in the future... patience. :)
