    Hi,

    I was wondering if the vanity account shows "This user is banned" when an account get's banned?

    I don't want my main Pinterest account showing that.

    I believe that it you're taken to a generic page not exist which is the same for deleted pins, boards, etc. Been awhile since I had an account suspended, so things may have changed.

    If you remember the URL for one of your banned accounts, it would be so awesome to verify that! :)

    I don't even need to know your URL, I just want to know what the error message is. I have a client who can't handle the humility of having a "this account was banned" message since it's bad PR/press.

    My banned accounts have all been reinstated. So I don't have a way to check. Sorry. But I'm sure others here might be able to help.
