***** Update April 24, 2012 *****
The response I received from Pinterest.
The spammer (trying to push porn) has been removed from my "following" list.
I'm very happy and now I know what to do if this ever happens again.
Pinterest responded quickly and took care of the problem.
I'm glad because I love Pinterest!

******** Update May 10, 2012 *******
I've decided to delete my Pinterest account. It has been deleted.
Today I had two new girls "friend" me that I don't trust - and certainly don't trust them having my information to use on a porn/spam site again.
I wish they would let me limit friends and followers to people I want following me or that I could block people that I don't want following me.
There is something sinister about these strange people who all of a sudden follow 10,000 people with no boards. I'm not sure what they are up to - but I don't want to be part of it.
I know it sounds silly because my blog is public and there is a lot of information about me here.
There is something about the loss of control in my Pinterest account that I don't like.
So - it has been deleted. I can still use Pinterest - but not keep "boards" of things I like.
It's been a lot of fun - but I feel liberated from getting rid of one more thing to suck up my time on the Internet. It's good to have it gone.
