Earlier this evening, some kind of spam-exploit injected javascript code that started replacing many Pinterest photos with ads for Best Buy. (see photo.) The actions resulted in disgruntled users blaming Pinterest.


This is what happens when you get too big too fast.

You become a Target, or in this case, an ad for Best Buy.

Sorry, couldn't resist.
