One thing that really frustrates and confuses me about pinterest users posting affiliate links disguised by bit.ly or rstyle.me is: if I post an affiliate link on my blog, I am required to disclose that it's an affiliate link. It just doesn't seem ethical to me for these users (many of whom I'm sure are real users and not bots) to post their affiliate links and to not only not disclose that they're making money from them - but to try pretty hard to actually hide the fact that they're affiliate links. Maybe there's some subtle legal difference that I'm just not understanding. But this always leaves a bad taste in my mouth and really seems like it could become a legal issue down the road, so I just remove affiliate links and re-link the items to the original page when I re-pin.
