Confirmed victory

Remove addresses of family members of sex offenders

It is against Pinterest's terms of use to post personal information of another person - yet they are blatantly ignoring this policy by ignoring multiple reports of the four Pinterest boards owned by the Albany Times Union, which post the photographs and personal information of people on the registry and by proxy, their family members and children. There is no evidence to suggest this type of notification is effective at protecting the public - in fact, it may increase recidivism by making it impossible for registrants and their families to move on with their lives. Both the Times Union and Ben Silbermann have ignored multiple attempts to contact them and explain why these boards are dangerous. They have been public since October 2012.
