Awesome - thank you! How do they spam our pin boards anyway?? Bizarre.
you are AWESOME. Thank you sooo much! I just got spammed and your post helped tons!
I've no idea how they do it, but it's extremely annoying.. I was panicking for a moment when I couldn't hit that Edit button (which only appeared for less than a second), but then I went to another pin's page and checked how the edit link looked like, so it's great that it's just that extra "/edit/" =)
All of the sudden last night I had several pins that I did not create. Your fix is not working for me. Says "page not found" when I do this. Help!
Debra, unfortunately, I don't know why this isn't working for you. (I'm just a regular Pinterest user myself as well.) I would suggest that you browse their support page - especially "Account Security", and Help! Someone is accessing my account without my permission. If you can't get rid of the unwanted pins, submit a support ticket to Pinterest, and ask them how to do it. (Meanwhile, do change your password, just in case!)
