Amazon responded with:
The text entered may not contain profanity
Further experimentation proved that entering any URL would cause this error message to appear. Even www.amazon.com ! In fact, entering any text followed by .org or .com caused it to appear. Entering "www" also caused it to appear.
All this stuff was just fine if entered in the "web page" field, however.
