Pinterest is search cancer

It has so completely invaded every image search, it's nearly impossible to find original sources and attribute photos without adding "-site:pinterest.*" (minus quotes). Even then, somehow, there are at least a handful of Pinterest results

@cypnk I still don't get what Pinterest actually is for, aside from making a mess of searches. I look at it sometimes trying to figure out what value it adds to anyone's life and I'm totally coming up blank.

@mike@social.chinwag.org It originated as a gateway for storage for computer illiterate people collecting arts, clippings, fashion etc... Basically, you wouldn't need to worry about "where did I save that photo I wanted to chain mail you", when you can just send the link. Then it moved on to marketing and now it and Instagram have a near monopoly on photo sharing
