Amazon keeps emailing me about items that--if I follow their own link and add them to my cart--won't ship to my address with no reason given. Even items that are now in my purchase history (items that I've received from them before).
I don't mind the spam so much (some items are relevant to me); it's the pointless teasing I don't appreciate..."here it is...you just can't have it".
I don't appreciate..."here it is...you just can't have it".
That remember me something with women... but I don't want to brake the KSS Rule
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I was bitching about the same a while ago (maybe a year). But nowadays, there is a warning on the product page: This item does not ship to Norway. In red print. I may ignore it and go ahead with the ordering process - I might change the shipping address to a legal country in the process.
I don't think this is Amazon's "fault", but marketing strategies defined by the manufacturer or wholesaler. Like Disney, they don't want Amazon to sell DVD/BDs cheaper to Norway, they want the Norwegian distributor be the only way to get hold of a Disney movie, at 50-100% higher price. If Amanzon will not respect that, Disney will not sell any movie through Amazon. I might get the same movie from Amazon Marketplace - especially used items are not restricted this way. Or the sellers of used items ignore those restrictions.
I buy most of my movies from amazon.co.uk, and that is where I most often see this "does not ship to Norway". Often I go on to amazon.com, and the movie is available there, with no export restrictions. I am thinking that maybe they simply are not aware of Norway being a country outside the USA but think of it as a village somewhere in the Midwest (it is, too), so they think it is OK to ship to Norway. Or they simply will not let a chance of profit pass by.
(Obviously, if you order movies from USA, you should have a multi-zone player / software, and if you do not master the language(s) of the movie, you may have to look around at subtitle websites to download subtitles in a language you understand.)
I believe there's a rule in the EU that a company can't prevent you from using any of their other EU websites. I sometimes buy Blu-Rays from Amazon.FR and get them shipped to the UK and it can be quite a bit cheaper than Amazon UK.
I'm not sure if/how these rules apply to Norway as I know it's not EU but shares some common rules, so not sure where that line is.
From Norway we can certainly order from any Amazon site, but I had to trust Google Translate to interpret the French site (I did receive what I expected!)
In any case, I don't think that is the issue here. Amazon stores will gladly send me stuff, but in some cases, they are not allowed to by the manufacturer. Disney is one of those forbidding sale of BDs to Norway (but they allow at least some DVDs).
So I think this is a case of "Don't shoot the messenger".
Lucifer (/ˈljuːsɪfər/ LEW-si-fər; "light-bringer") was a Latin name for the planet Venus as the morning star in the ancient Roman era, and is often used for mythological and religious figures associated with the planet. Due to the unique movements and discontinuous appearances of Venus in the sky, mythology surrounding these figures often involved a fall from the heavens to earth or the underworld. Interpretations of a similar term in the Hebrew Bible...
I heard that a certain fallen angel does not like to hear his name mocked.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
