I've been getting the "Oops! Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to spam." message on Pinterest when trying to pin from ToughNickel. I only have one hub on that site, so I don't know if it's just my article or not.
This happens every now and then, usually because too many Hubbers have been self-promoting their Hubs on Pinterest.
The idea of Pinterest is to pin items that members choose based on their quality or value. They don't want people pinning stuff just because they want readers, regardless of merit. So they are always on the alert for sites that might be doing that. Since there are many Hubbers with many Hubs, HubPages is one of those sites.
