    I got a message that someone had pinned one of my Pins. It was a pin from Hubpages, when I clicked it I got a message 410. That page doesn't exist. I thought that person had left Hubpages but when I checked she is still here but her page is not here. What do you do remove it from Pinterest because the page is gone or do you just leave it. I feel Pinterest would not be happy with a website you can't get to.

      When I pin, I make sure that it is from a legitimate site and that the web address will take you straight to the photo (for example, the blog post and not the general blog name).  Once it is there though, I don't take the time to keep checking to make sure that the site hasn't been taken down. I don't have time for that. Plus, many times the photo by itself is enough to me to keep as a reminder even if I can't get to the site (i.e. craft inspiration).

      I think that if you pin in good faith, you should be just fine, as the odds of the address being bad are low. I would think that Pinterest would know that some addresses just become bad over time.

      I would think that it is also possible that there was a server hiccup and the site is just fine, just temporarily not able to be displayed.

      However, if I do know that a particular link is a bad one, and the picture by itself is not sufficient reason to keep it on my board, I will remove it.

    Can't you just click edit and delete pin?  I always delete all the pins on my boards that don't lead anywhere.  Good luck!

        You use the little edit pencil thing if it's yours and if not, I think you can right click and then hit delete.

    The most frustrating thing I have notice on Pinterest is with recipes that I want to pin and share. I've started discovering that the link leads to another person's Pinterest who originally pinned it but no recipe. So why even bother to repin? However to go through all the recipes I've already pinned is impossible. I also hate it when I repin and then get the notice that the pin was deleted because someone protested. The person who originally pinned should have made sure it was alright.

      One thing I have found is that there are people who copy pins and images and create their own site. They do usually provide a link to the original site. This way, when you click on a pin, you go to a page that has the the image (and probably advertising - don't know, I have an ad blocker) and have to click again to get to the original.  Sometimes you can tell this by the website name, but often times you have to click to find out.

      When I discover that this has happened, I change the link to the original one, and report the pin. I also ban that website so this doesn't happen again.

      When I am repinning though, I don't always have the time to check every pin to make sure it is a good one. The point is to have a link that I can refer to later.  I do try to at least click once to know the name of the website so I can see if seems reliable.

    I cannot get into pinterest... or bubblews or several other of the sites that are often brought up.
    They feel trite and isolating and boring. I have really enjoyed this site quite a bit. I feel way more connected here.
