This is why I disclose in a review if I received the product for free.

Affiliate links are not reviews or endorsements, though. They can be accompanied by endorsements, but I haven't seen, say, Arcadata saying "buy this book, it's awesome". Just "hey, it's on sale here". That's not a recommendation.

And, as Catlady said, this would be fixed with a "say if the link is an affiliate one" rule instead of this "one thread to rule them all" implementation.
