Again: Domain Wrongly Flagged As Low Quality

Just visiting

Hi there, 

My URL has been flagged as low quality yet again, just about 10 days after Pinterest solved this issue last time. My traffic and impressions haven't even completely recovered since I got my pins back up in search and this is happening again. For the third time since April.

My pins are nowhere to be found in Public search, instead the pins that were stolen from me and redirected to various spam websites come up at the top for all the keywords my blog usually ranks for. Somehow these dangerous websites seem to be higher quality than blogs with original content. The good news is that the first time this happened I didn't know what to do to fix it, so I decided to "clean" most of that spam that was ranking high, so now it's not all over Pinterest.

This whole thing has been very frustrating and is ruining my experience with Pinterest (which has been great for 3+ years!). This situation is also having a huge negative impact on my income, my blog's reputation (as my pins keep disappearing and it seems as if I'm leading people to dangerous websites with my pins). My Pinterest profile can't recover either - it went from 9m to almost 4m monthly views the first time...Now after a few weeks of being "back in the game" I'm slowly climbing back up to 6m. Are the actual spam profiles that we report going to ever be deleted?

I know this issue has been affecting many bloggers last month, is anyone else here affected by this now?

I wonder what is so un-fixable about a bug that's flagging good URLs as low quality...Isn't there a way to whitelist the good URLs for good? 

Is this going to happen with every Pinterest update from now on? If so, what can we do about it?

I know the Pinterest team is doing the best they can, but when this happens it usually takes at least 7-10 days to get the account back in search again...and then another 7-10 days to get back to normal impressions and then it's happening's crazy. I've already contacted Pinterest support, but is there anyone else I could contact, so that my site can be safe listed faster?
