    Hey MD -- sometimes it's really hard to tell why a work trips the "spammy" filter. Sadly in my experience there is often nothing that can be done once that happens, and trying to fix it turns into a frustrating waste of time. In this case I suspect the powers that be think that this piece is too general, on a topic that's too common, and is written just to generate clicks and not from a personal experience. Too bad, because it's more than that. If I were you I would regroup, write a punchy hub or two (about 1200 words) about something that you experienced (with detail and specificity), and pop in an Amazon module relationship book that you can personally recommend. Do that a few times and see what happens.
    I would also save the one you wrote to a word file and delete the original hub. You can always use bits and pieces of that hub in future ones -- I do that all the time.
    Good luck and it's nice to see a new hubber with writing talent.

    Are you sure the problem is spammy elements, or did you just get a generic email which mentioned several possible reasons, that being only one of them?
