It's not just the "if" I'm referring but the "and" listed in the T&C.

Starting March 1, 2013, Associates who we determine are promoting primarily free Kindle eBooks and meet both conditions below for a given month will not be eligible for any advertising fees for that month within the Amazon Associates Program. This change will not affect advertising fees earned prior to March 1, 2013.

At least 80% of all Kindle eBooks ordered and downloaded during Sessions attributed to your Special Links are free Kindle eBooks
20,000 or more free Kindle eBooks are ordered and downloaded during Sessions attributed to your Special Links
It is a poorly worded statement that along with CS email inconsistencies (received even by a MR member) that caused confusion. My initial thought was the same as yours that the 2 conditions determined what is a free ebook promoting website. But others read more into it hoping perhaps an arts & craft affiliate wouldn't get penalized by the actions of others who are out of their control.
