No, you're not imaginging things

by brae  

I have disabled all photos on my blog, which is a bit ridiculous for a tutorial and show-and-tell blog.  I am once again dealing with a difficult Pinterest user who is insisting on pinning every image in my recap posts to Pinterest.  As I was copying countless links to report to Pinterest, I disabled pinning temporarily to catch up.  This person then decided to work around that block and continue pinning.  So, I took my site offline for a bit to stop the pins so I could finish my DMCA report to Pinterest.  Since I figured it would be best to offer an explanation, I put the site back up and just blocked the images.  No images, no pins.

I hope to be back in business soon.

The internet can be a great thing. But, sometimes can be a real pain. Right now I am dealing with someone somehow got on my reading list and I cant unfollow it as it does not show up when I look at “the sites I follow.

Looking forward to seeing what you are doing these days.

Here’s to us both getting rid of our online bugs!

I am so sorry you have to do all this just to be able to do your own thing, in your own space.

Some people’s sense of entitlement defies description.

I hope Pinterest bans this person from using their service–intellectual property has value and should be respected.

Best of luck.

I’m so sorry you have to deal with all of this. I can only imagine the time and effort that goes into giving myself and others what I consider to be my “happy zone". I have learned so much from following your journey.
Thank you and all the best.

I am sorry you are having to deal with people who do not respect your blog, your photos, and your copyrights. I have never pinned any of your pics; I come to your blog if I want to view your pics and tutorials. They should do that.
