It should be mentioned, cautiously, that the "salute/slut" incident happened in a translation of a caption of a photo of a very specific Thai person. THAT is the reason why all translations were shut down, not just because of an humourous random misspelling.
I can't help with newegg. Amazon.com similarly adds Thai tax and duty at checkout. They also guarantee you won't pay more, even if the duty comes out higher, further, they refund you the difference if it comes out lower. I think after every single order I've received from Amazon I end up getting a small refund.
