I love this site - everything about how it is set up makes it easy for me, as a graphic designer, to come up with new ideas.
If you only wish to browse you are faced with a most annoying pop up to try force you to join, so I just leave and look elsewhere. I am suspicious as to why you have to join when you are only browsing. I hate and disagree with sites that try "Force you" without explanation.

This site is easy to use, fast, reliable, educational, creative, flexible. Can be very entertaining too. I love it.

The site posts links without letting you see the full originating site easily, has great risk of phishing/scams when clicking links without knowing the target. Also has very poor privacy controls... but follows twitter mindset on this issue (all your life should be public, etc).
many opportunities throughout the site
It is too easy to reach porn from this site.

Received Spam message from "Ben & the Pinterest Team". I don't know how useful is this site, but spamming will never solve or improve anything.

There's no doubting the obvious appeal here but wait a second . Does anyone here remember a time when You used a computer and were instructed to come up with a 'Screen Name' to protect Your privacy? So why the heck should ANY of us have to sign in to use any of the large number.. (e.g. 'googleplex') of sites that often used to be, and indeed SHOULD be free and open to use? Well politically correct answers aside #1 MONEY . pretty much everywhere You go, everything You do,buy,like,retweet etc is of interest to someone and FB,Gogle,etc make 99 percent of their revenue selling YOUR information to ..????
