Just a heads up here; on another board I look at, lots of newbies with only 1 or 2 posts were inundating the boards with post that said "I asked to join Pinterest a while ago and have not hear back yet; I'm impatient and can't wait any longer. Can somebody send me an invite?"

Lots of good natured, trusting people were sending invites to these TROLLS and were getting spam and such in their e-mail. The board finally caught on and people are no longer issuing invites to just anybody i.e. a NEWBIE.

I'm not accusing anyone here on this thread of being a troll, please don't think I am. This is just a heads-up post, because I think if the word is out that you can come here and get an invite to Pinterest (and give the wrong sort of person your e-mail) the spammers will be over here in droves.

Sorry this got long, but I like this message board, and don't want anyone to get spammed or the boards get clogged up with these spammers.

I also like Pinterest and love looking at all the cards and projects posted.
