Yahoo does not like affiliate sites. They have said so. However, they will only ban your site if they find it. Stay relatively small and your chances are good of remaining in the engine for a good, long time. If your site get lots of referrals from them, your site will get banned.

No, Yahoo doesn't ban affiliate sites.

Likely scenario is that Yahoo disregards affiliate sites with little to zero original content, or affiliate sites with poor backlinks, etc. Just like any other search engine.
