I also sent in a support ticket to ask for help from ezine articles. Well they have replied. They say my website is an auction site! and I am not allowed to link to auction sites. Well actually it is a site about vacuum cleaners which just happens to have a few Amazon and Ebay affiliate links on the page. The domain is registered in my name and I have built the site myself.
I have sent them a reply pointing this out and await their next response.
What next. No-one can link to any site whether they own it or not if it has any form of affiliate product on the page?
Totally pissed off
