Follow-up: Pinterest added my site to a whitelist so it wouldn't be blocked, and told me it might take up to 48 hours to get unblocked. Nothing happened. I complained to their press person again, and Aaron is supposedly still working on it. It appeared to be unblocked for most users for a few hours yesterday, but it's blocked again.
They have no idea why it's blocked, and no idea how to fix it.
Considering that many of us around here are self-taught and we can figure out how to fix our sites, I don't think it's unfair to expect the same from Pinterest. I think these yahoos don't have a clue how, like, ya know, websites work, and maybe they should've spent some of that venture capital on hiring a script kiddie intern.
Pinterest is SOOOOOO ripe to having someone come in and copy their very simple business idea, but with better technology and a better way of dealing with copyright, and take their share of the net right over. Seriously.
