    Wow! That's a lot of user follows! We love your enthusiasm, but you've hit one of the blocks we have in place to combat spam. Please try again later.


    Got this message today and I am a little freaked out because I have been working on these accounts for months.I have NEVER had this problem in the 3 months I have been doing this.Has anybody got this message and did you get banned? :confused:

    I usually follow about 900 a day per account and I have a private proxy for each account and I do not follow boards I make my own,I also follow manually and use no bots.Like I said I have never had a problem before and now every one of my accounts is getting this message.

    No, didn't received it. It's probably because I don't follow that much in a day. Not sure what's Pinterest follow limit per day. You might hit it already.

    Me either. 900 per day looks too much, not normal behavior. Some would say that even 50-60 pins a day is more than regular users are doing.

    900 follows seems a bit excessive. then again, you have been doing this for months.

    As far as I now you can follow 300 people per hour. Maybe you have exceeded the limit

    I do not know what happened but I have brought it down to 250 per 1.5 hours and have been fine since.I think Pinterest is looking for people using bots and me following exactly the limit ever could hours could trigger their alarm.
