Hello again -- I just found this when I googled: entitled Report objectionable or spammy content... The icon to click on is on the right under the image in the white space where the website name is on the left. I have just reported a link to a horribly anti Semitic website that looked like an innocuous small photo of the reburial of the Romanov family.

Here are the instructions from my link:
'Report a pin

Click on the pin to view its full size
Position your mouse over the pin image for the reporting option to appear at the bottom of the pin.
Click the flag at the bottom of the pin
Choose the reason for the report and click Report Pin'

You get a menu of options as to why you are reporting.

The flag is on the right in my version. It's a small grey flag icon.
HTH

No matter now smile

Any luck clicking on your Pinterest name and getting to the drop down menu? My version of Pinterest changed a few weeks ago (to new 'improved' version) so it might not be the same layout as yours, but I know there was a help page somewhere in my old version.

Hmmm startail I'm not worked up about it - I just wasn't expecting to see such graphic images on Pinterest.

Also you did not see this image and NOBODY would click past it as nothing!

I don't think it's ok to just have to expect that TBH.

I disagree about children clicking past without caring much.

Porn is everywhere on the net it's no use getting terribly wound up about it.

The most innocent imagine searches bring up the oddest things. I suspect most children just click past them without caring much.

Still not worked out how to do it shock

It was on the everything page and it was very very graphic!

Ahh well, long gone now, just means I will have to supervise DC on it now, which is a shame.

Still love Pinterest and not really sure why you would post porn there confused smile

If it's disguised as something else, or if you click on Visit Website from some picture of a crockpot casserole or some fashion page and you are taken to the porn then I would report. Plenty of teens use Pinterest and I have come across situations where I have clicked on Visit Website only to find access blocked by Pinterest 'due to inappropriate content'. Clearly someone has reported, or maybe they can track links.

If you click on the Pin symbol or your name you will find a drop down menu that includes Help. Maybe you'll find some way to report it there, or some way to email and find out how to report it?

(Sorry, not very technical)

Is porn not allowed on Pinterest?

Should I report it, if so, how?
