Competing Ads and Affiliates Question

I am unclear by the TOS competing ads paragraph. Would it be safe to say that 'button (image) affiliate ads' are OK, while mostly anything text based is not?

Both text and image affiliate ads are allowed.

From the AdSense FAQ:

5. Can I sign up if I am already a part of an ad network?
Yes. However, we do not permit AdWords ads to be published on web pages that also contain what could be considered competing ads. This would include all content-targeted ads as well as text-based ads. Text-based ads, for this situation, can be loosely defined as ads that mimic AdWords ads or appear to be associated with AdWords ads on your site. We do allow affiliate or limited-text links.

Just to highlight what's the most important part of the quote, imho:

... we do not permit ...ads that mimic AdWords ads or appear to be associated with AdWords ads on your site...
