Amazon Wish Lists

Amazon.com wish lists...you got one?
I just started one up this week and who knows how many hundreds of items I've racked up.

Can you somehow configure your Amazon wish list(s) to where people can buy things for you without them being able to see your name and shipping address?
Y'know, for all my crazed fans out there.

Yes to the latter, but I think you have to have a semi-recognizable name viewable (e.g. could you get something shipped to your place of residence with your forum alias on it? Not likely).

Does anyone else have the problem of searching for an item to add it to your wish list, but the wish list button does not always appear, so then you can't? This happens to me a lot.

? I don't mind Amazon having my name and address, I've ordered from them before. I wanna know if it's possible to block that from people who might wanna buy for you. I've seen wish lists where all they have displayed is some made-up name (like a forum name) and city & state of residence (without the address).

Anyone know if there's a way to export a simplified printable list of your Amazon wish list? I've spent a lot of time compiling my wish lists with a cumulative 1000+ items, and one thing I hate about Amazon is when the seller removes a listing there's no way to find out what that item was. Does that automatically happen if the item is no longer sold new, and there are no longer any sellers listed for the item used? Or will the placeholder remain until the seller removes it?

If _you're_ this well-versed in the English language, you might want to hire a proofreader, you political savant & big city megadude, you.

I'm going to answer my own question. Found an item on my list with no sellers, so they don't just disappear on their own.
Perhaps if there's no sellers for a certain amount of time the listing is automatically removed?
