If you don't use Pinterest (I know there are still a few of you left) please feel free to click away now.
For those of you who do, you'll have noticed that over the last few days, there has been a LOT of spam pinning -- mostly for products (particularly fashion items).
If you want to help fight it, here's what to do...
click on the Pin so it opens (preferably in a new tab or window)
now on the RIGHT-HAND SIDE you'll see REPORT PIN. Click on it.
Now, click on SPAM and you're done.
I don't know how much good it'll do. Personally I hope the spammers immediately receive a shipment of flea-infested monkeys playing recorders, and that someone has the good sense to post a picture of the mayhem.
Be careful, though. Sometimes well-meaning people categorise your boards and so your pins end up in categories they weren't meant to be in.
You can tell by looking at the board the pinner has put the pin in.
The crafty rose thing has been categorised wrongly by someone as HUMOUR.
The ring has been spammed -- it's been Pinned into HUMOUR deliberately.
Right. That's my Community Service obligation fulfilled for this week. I'm off to look at more Pinterest.
