It seems that Hubpages has been blocked. My account is live, but it seems that Hubpages pins are not allowed at the moment. Is anyone else experiencing this? I can pin from other sites with no problem.

I tried to repin one of billybuc's pins, and the message says: Sorry! You've hit a pin block. Users have reported that this pin links to spam or inappropriate content.
I think this can't be, we are all blocked indiscriminately!
But look at the spammy stuff on Squidoo and they say that wasn't hit. You look there and the articles are just covered with ads. I don't get it.
The latest news is that the ban was lifted, review forum on the same topic and read post by Simone Smith
I do a fair amount of hub hopping and it's about 50% drek, 30% mediocre coming through there, lots of spammy stuff. I have no idea how much members' hub hopping could help to weed out these kind of low-content articles.
Did you get a blocked message? I've been experiencing '502 Gateway' errors. I just try 2 or 3 times and it seems to eventually come up with 'successful'.
Hi. No "502 Gateway" Simply Blocked.
I think their site is struggling. Although the pin button turns gray, you can just re-click it and attempt to pin a few times (I found 1-3 attempts would work today). You get a success message when it works.
I shared to Pinterest from an HP hub just some minutes ago, no problem at alI.Went through some boards on Pinterest, and found it slow, but got into most of the places I clicked. I got one 502, went round again and then it was all right. Just slow!
That would be a tremendous loss for all of us.
It looks like Pinterest has now unblocked Hubpages. At least that last that I checked, mine are now alright.
"Pinterest does not allow photographs containing breasts, buttocks or genitalia."
Neither does HubPages.
