Illegal to link to Amazon now?

    I must have missed something, but is it illegal to link to Amazon.com using your own affiliate code in your hub?  I keep getting hubs flagged for "inappropriate site" and this last one a link to a DVD of Fight Club is the only link on the entire hub.  Should this be a flag, or is this an error?

    I use links to my astores and have never had a problem. So unless this is something new.....?

    There are issues with some US states at present I believe due to the tax laws. I haven't had any issues although am in the UK

    Well this is definitely odd then since Iowa doesn't pass any online sales tax laws and isn't about to with the current governor.  But for some reason hubs with only one link out (amazon) are getting labeled as "linking to inappropriate site."  Subdomain traffic was hammered today, too - down to my lowest traffic total ever on HubPages.  Guess it's just not my day.
