I understand what you're saying, leosghost, but I've been reading about this and apparently search engines ignore meta-refresh. The engines are slowly replacing my old pages with the new ones, and I don't want to screw that process up to accommodate Pinterest's inadequacies. 301 is the best practice from a search perspective as well as for user experience.
And as for Pinterest users, they convert, and that's why I don't want to irritate them.
