Forget about the work from home moms. This guideline document and the advice given there to detect spam stinks. No wonder we are seeing so many hits.
If your page content is copied by others, it no longer enjoys "Original" status. PPC ads or affiliate links on such pages will automatically induce the "work from home moms" to mark them as "Spam". Reading 4.1.7 along with how they are advised to detect copied content makes this very clear.
The very first technique to recognize "Thin Affiliate" in 5.1.1 is where you are not able to make a purchase on the affiliate webpage. (How many affiliates offer purchasing functionality on their own domains?)
If you use CJ links, you are more likely to be classified as using sneaky redirects and hence "Spam".
