individual companies can turn you down, within the affiliate program, and they did.
But everyday, at the top of my site, my most visible AdSense ad is that same company that turned me down!
A friend pointed out that had they accepted me, and then blocked my site for their AdWords campaign, then they would probably have had to pay less, because the banner/affiliate is commission/percentage based on sales generated, and it's not CPC like AdSense.
A more likely scenario (based on a vague email from them) is that they loaded my site up, saw that the first AdSense ad was their's (and they maybe targeting my site) and didn't want too many ads from their company on the site or thought I might block them from AdSense (the banner was lower down than the AdSense - I explained where it would be located), or they felt that they were getting their money's worth with AdSense on my site (I would assume the same people handling their AdSense campaign handles their other affiliate programs as well).
if your site complies with the guides of either program, then there isn't normally any reason to be rejected. It may be an idea to submit and see what happens.

is it adwords or adsense? and how can you feel weird about a reaction that hasn't even been given yet?
the mod explains to rose_1171 that it is against the TOS to post urls and another member, FrostyMug, apologises.
have i been taking the wrong drugs again? :P
