Per my knowledge, deleted ads should not count, but paused and active only.
You would be wrong other wise they would not of listed sites that were deleted over a year ago and also that same person who let the domain go years ago was told to fix it even though he no longer owns the domain and hadn't ran ads for it for 3 years.
So, it would be safe to assume that they look at the history of the account and count it.
Also, if they don't want affiliate ads, they just need to come right and say we don't want affiliates.
