You might find a lot of cakes and wedding pictures in Pinterest, but its also home to somewhat a lot of sexy images. Except ones from Sex.com
Lain MacNeil—founder of the NSFW Pinterest-esque Sex.com—is up in arms over Pinterest's refusal to allow user pins sourced from Sex.com.
Without contacting us, Pinterest banned all activity from Sex.com. Pinterest users can no longer pin any content from Sex.com nor can they view the site from older pins. We've unjustly been marked as spam. Our attempts to contact Pinterest have been fruitless. We want to know why they banned their adult community from seeing an alternative. Is it as simple as Pinterest is afraid of losing the adult content community despite the fact they do not respect users who use their site for adult content? Or is it that Pinterest does not believe a female audience for Sex.com is inappropriate?
"In all official Pinterest Terms of Service they claim that pins are the responsibility of the user," he told TechCrunch. "So on what grounds do they have the right to supersede the user's ability to pin from Sex.com?"
Maybe Pinterest has something against a site that copied its user interface?
