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?

Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on the products so far. I wanted to know whether this actually works, so I clicked on...

I get a decent amount of traffic to a particular article on one of my blogs and just decided to add an amazon image link to it, though I already had a text link.
