A Crowdsourced Censorship Board

The new censorship flag crowdsources content policing
and will stroke some much needed drama.

Pinterest is not satisfied with being a crowdscraper of third-party content.

Pinterest is now crowdsourcing the censorship of "offensive content" uploaded by its users, to its users.

Pinterest users are not just unpaid scrapers, and a legal shield; they are now Pinterest's censorship board.

Pin Hags can now bitch and moan to Pinterest about the following offenses to their sensitbility:
  • Nudity or Pornography
  • Attacks a group or Individual
  • Graphic Violence
  • Hateful Speech or Symbols
  • Actively promotes self-harm
  • Spam
  • Other

According to PC Mag, and on the plus side, the drama is bound to erupt:
Blocking someone will prevent you and the other person from being able to follow each other's boards, as well as like, repin, or comment on each other's pins.
