#@#$ #%$ Censors!

I was on Pinterest.

Now I am not.

This is why:

They deleted an entire board of mine for violating their rules regarding nudity and sexual images. The thing that really chapped my hide about it wasn’t that they wanted to remove individual pins, they had been doing that for some time. What I didn’t appreciate was that it was a private board that no one else could see.

I had already been frustrated with the addictiveness of it. Seriously, it lights up my ADD perfectly. IDEAS! Pretty Pictures! No actual action required!

So when they decided  to delete a board that was not even viewable by anyone else, I had had enough.

I deactivated my account.

Sigh.

Goodbye ADD bait.

    In good news, I now, for some reason, get your posts sent to my email, which means I am paying attention to your blog. In bad news, I thought I had signed up for this long before, so I missed many posts. It appears that Pinterest doesn’t have the staff to determine the difference between porn and art/message imagery, and censors indiscriminately. Bummer.

      well, they may have been porn-ish. But the PRIVATE boards should be granted quite a bit of leeway, in my opinion.
      glad you are email-y now 🙂
