    We Have Lost so many Large group boards Just for Those Idiots who are Over - Spamming those BIG boards.
    Pictures even are NOT related to the group boards.


    PINTEREST will delete ALL GROUP board If Group owner will not remove spammers.

    Advice for SPAMMERS - BE SMART DO NOT OVER-SPAM - LET IT BE LONG TERM MONEY.

    i agree. but it seems like these people never learn. they are running the sprint, instead of the marathon, which is unfortunate for them.

    Spammers don't care about the boards coming down. They will find new ones. There is no such thing as not "over-spamming" The definition of spamming is "Send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on the Internet."

    These spammers are using bots so they can't always precisely target their messages. Yeah, it is annoying, but there is really not much you can do.

    I don't invite people to my boards but I get about 8 invites a day and I post related pics once in awhile to them.Some have over 25,000 followers and I would never risk losing them to spamming..Be smart and think long term.It will pay off.

    I was looking into doing pinterest a little while back, but saw many of the big board i wanted to become a part of spammed with all that crap. I heard how much money could be made, but wasn't sure how after seeing the amount of crap being stuffed into the boards

    i agree again.
    guys, be very careful who you invite to your boards.
    because they can then invite themselves multiple times and you will be having trouble trying to remove all the spam accounts.
    i invite NO ONE to my main big boards, can't trust people :)

    This is the same shit that happened to Instagram. Check these boards - every damn thread is about an Instagram bot. I agree with you, people shouldn't do this shit - but it's gonna happen, and when it gets bad, you gotta know when to move to the next scene.

    People will rape a social media site, then it beefs up security to the point where it's not profitable for the developers making these bots, because it takes too much time and we might as well just move to a less secure platform where we can bot easier to a less saturated market.

    I see one only positive thing: I know where to get all these "before and after" weight loss photos for my future wl campaigns.
    I have lost many big boards too.

    This shouldn't be surprising to a large social network such as pinterest. I don't need to mention that they should address this spam issue just like FB did unless they want to run another myspace failure.

    To be honest, i wonder how they get away with spam on Pinterest these days. There's so much protection now. I gave up on PINT more than a year ago and i wasn't spamming ! Just basic marketing (imagine)
