It's still the same. It's always the same!
It was the same years ago when Paypal cancelled my seller account after they suddenly got morals. No warning, no recourse.
It was the same when my first US web host removed my site. No warning, no recourse.
And it's the same today when I got an anonymous (and un-reply-able) email from Amazon which told me my affiliate account was cancelled (not forever, only until dinosaurs rule the Earth again), because of sexually explicit content on my site they said.
No warning, no recourse.
I hate when big companies do this. Why can't they act like proper people? Why can't they be as nice to their affiliates as they are to their customers? Not to mention that Amazon blithely sell porn movies on their site. (I don't know the scope of this, but they certainly sell the two first movies I tested for, Deep Throat and Debbie Does Dallas.) Isn't that rather a double standard?
Why couldn't they just tell me: "remove link from this and that page, and we are good."
Why are big companies always so friggin draconian? Is it a contract they have to sign to be allowed on the Fortune 500 list?
