    I still don't understand why ghost an account rather than outright ban. Reddit and Craigslist do that, too.

    Thank you for that share, I really enjoyed that part:

    "Weiner remembers the first time he saw spam on Pinterest. The Samwer brothers—a trio of Germany-based digital entrepreneurs notorious for copying high-growth web businesses and marketing them to a foreign audience—had just mimicked Pinterest, unveiling a shameless knockoff they called Pinspire. And to make matters worse, they started posting spam on Pinterest itself, trying to herd its audience to their counterfeit service. "Hey, that's a great pin," the post would say. "Why don't you also post to Pinspire?""
