I understood that there are two separate but linked things in their Handbook:
- about thin affiliates and
- about use of sneaky redirects
They talked about aff links in one part of the document and sneaky redirects are explained in another part. Accidentally or not, for a sneaky redirect example they used a CJ affiliate link (which does redirect).
As far as I understood if you use a sneaky redirect link, you do web spam for sure, but when it comes to affiliate links you can be a thin affiliate (bad) or not thin (not bad).
