I must officially be the grouchy old woman on Facebook right now complaining about piracy of patterns on Pinterest. Pinterest said it would take the pins I reported within 24 hours and apparently the re-pins of those too, but a day and a half later over half of those are still there and I am finding more and more repins. I was putting comments on as many of the offending pins as I could, but then Pinterest told me I was commenting too much and blocked me. Since it's past 4 am, maybe just as well.
Sometimes seeing my books pirated makes me want to give up on publishing patterns. I don't know of that will happen, but I've been spending hours a day dealing with this piracy problem lately, which means the patterns I've been working on didn't get finished. And my Palmetto teaching application is behind schedule. And that disc that may solve my scanner driver problem, no time for that either.
There is a Russian gallery site that is the root source of much of my piracy problems. Unfortunately, unlike Picasaweb, and Chomikuj, and several others I've dealt with, I can't find a link for reporting abuse. Is there anyone fluent in both English and Russian willing to help?
