If I click or copy links to Amazon from the Retail forum I get there via "go.redirectingat.com" or Skimlinks.
Is this something ANN has started doing for affiliate credit or do I need to start hunting for Malaware?

It happens in Chrome, but doesn't seem to happen in Aurora (at least not when logged out).

Yeah, it's some affiliate thing we installed a while ago. It transforms amazon & other store links into affiliate links. I'm not sure if we make any money from it, but since there's zero impact on user experience we figured hey why not.
