The link "flowersbygenevieve" was referring to is actually just a link to her Auctiva store, for which she purchased a custom domain. Since her Auctiva store only displays her listings that are active on eBay at any given time, according to eBay's "Links Policy", that specific link actually should be permissible. In this case, the eBay employee who removed her listings assumed the link was prohibited without thoroughly investigating the contents of the associated site, which eBay eventually acknowledged.
