    Hi there,

    You may have wordpress.com confused with wordpress.org (the .org version supplies wordpress but you will need your own hosting). The .com owns *your* site and therefore you don't have the same level of control over what you put on it. Sorry. There are other free sites that will allow affiliate links that you can use but some have restrictions on the type of products you promote/number of links.

    just use a .co.cc domain to redirect,

    i never had a problem with them.
    also create a new account. since they will be watching you a little closer now.

    they can`t manage to check everything thats posted. you just had a bit of bad luck that they found you and didn`t find others.

    Is it too hard to read that link instead of posting here and waiting for an answer?

    Anyway, you cannot setup an affiliate blog on free wordpress. Either host it yourself or use blogger instead.
