    Well, I got a response back

    Seems as though my account got taken from me accidentally repinning pins that had unrelated links in the description. I viewed a cached version of one of my old boards and I did notice a few a had unrelated links in them. One had a link to a travel agency even though it was a picture of a shoe.

    This sucks, but it's my own fault for not looking closely enough to what I was repinning. I thought it was safe to repin something popular that had already been repinned hundreds or thousands of times before. Not true.

    Those accounts that were banned had less than 100 pins, and I did not even pin to group boards. So, spam is out of the question, I think.

    I think the IP is the reason, pinterest maybe bulids a IP spam lists, whatever you do, if you use those IPs, even just created a account, you got banned.

    Seeing an across-the-board drop in my following. Pinterest must be mass-banning again. Hope your accounts are safe.

    Were you using a bot and overdoing following/unfollowing/repinning/liking perhaps? That really sucks, sorry to hear about that. Just starting out with pinterest and things like this gets me scared.

    Spiteful bitches. And I'm a woman too, so it's not like I'm insulting the opposite sex. I just found out that my pinterest account for my store was suspended. I don't do anything wrong. All I do is pin my own products. I am so mad right now.
