an open letter to Ben and the Pinterest team
and why they will be responsible for some extra wrinkles
|pin this (yes, I said PIN) to spread the awareness, this could happen to your blog as well :(|
two days ago (that feels like forever, darn), I've received an email from a reader that told me that every time she was clicking on some of the pins from my blog, she would get this:
Users have reported that this links to spam or other inappropriate content.
I never, ever, EVER
posted anything that could be inappropriate or spam !!
So what a normal user would do?
go to the pinterest support page and check what's going on.
Nothing is being there on the subject on the Q&A, so I filled up a request.
To which, I get an automated-reponse which closes my case telling me that I don't have to worry about spam because they are taking care of it.
Hold on... I was NOT reporting my blog as SPAM.
So, I re-opened the case: (forget about the grammar mistakes, I was ballistic... I know I should have said ARE NOT SPAM)
